Despite what looked to be a dire situation while down 4-2 in the third set, the world No. 1 prevailed, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5. Staying in tough matches deep into third sets is something Halep is getting famous for doing: at the Australian Open, she pulled it off twice, against Lauren Davis and Angelique Kerber.
