"It was a very tough match today. I couldn't believe that I came from behind again. She played really well and she was fighting the whole match," said Halep.
"I'm very excited that I can play in my biggest final tomorrow. I hope that I can control my emotions and just play.
"I just have to enjoy it. I'm really happy that I can play the final here in Madrid."
However, the 22-year-old is aware of the size of the task that awaits her in Sharapova having lost in their only two meetings to date.
I am confused and cannot tell what the "having lost in their only two meetings" here means.
But please, do not define the whole phrase, break it down.
