The duo have played each other seven times previously with Halep winning on five occasions including their last meeting at Roland Garros in 2014.

Halep has lost all three of her Grand Slam final matches so far but the Romanian has looked in good form in this tournament.

Standing in her way is U.S. Open champion Stephens who has scythed down opponents with her power game.
