Serena Williams v Simona Halep

24 is the magic number

Williams continues her quest to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam singles titles. The American is stuck on 23 having lost in the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open last year, but can finally move level with the Australian with victory over Halep.

Halep will need to end her poor run of results against Williams if she is to secure a second grand slam. Last year's French Open champion has beaten Williams only once in 10 meetings, losing the last six.
