Simona Halep (ROU)  vs. Sabine Lisicki (GER) . The German
often always plays her best tennis of the year at Wimbledon and this year is another example of that. She is facing the 2014 French Open finalist from Romania, the most improved player of the last year. Halep was ranked 32 at last year's Wimbledon and is now the highest remaining seed at #3. Lisicki is trying to redeem herself after her painful (and pitiful) showing in last year's Wimbledon final. Halep is the more complete player but Lisicki is by far the more powerful. In battles between offense and defense, I usually go with offense, especially on a grass court. PREDICTION: Lisicki.
