Maria Sharapova

While in Rome for next week's Internazionali BNL d'Italia, NCR Podcast's Courtney Nguyen and Ben Rothenberg hosted a special podcast breaking down this week's Mutua Madrid Open.

At the start of the week, Nguyen correctly predicted a final of Maria Sharapova against Simona Halep.

"Right now, when you look at the WTA, when you look at the two best 'dirtballers,' you can certainly make a case that it is Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep," Nguyen said. 

Nguyen explained of Halep, "It's really nice to see her have the year that she did last season and back it up. I think that was one of the big questions entering 2014, 'Is Simona Halep for real?' And I think she has established that she is."
