Aga outplays Halep in Miami
2012 champion Agnieszka needed three sets to battle past the top seed and world no.1 Simona Halep and reach the Miami Open round of 16.
It was Aga’s 11th time playing the Romanian, and she now leads their H2H 6-5.
The Pole bounced back from a set down to clinch a 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 win.
After losing the opening set, the 30th seed regrouped and found her way to come back into the match.
She took the second set to level the contest before falling behind early in the decider. It didn`t take her long though to find her winning gear again. Aga broke twice to seal the victory in one hour and 44 minutes.
Stats: aces (0-3), double faults (0-1), total points won (82-69).
Up next, Agnieszka will take on the winner between no.20 seed Anastasija Sevastova (LAT) and three-time former titlist Victoria Azarenka (BLR, WC).
