McEnroe's Keys for both Halep and Wozniacki to win the Aussie Open

Halep must be willing to play some high balls and angles -- and even hit an occasional slice off her backhand side to keep Wozniacki out of the rhythm she loves.

She has certainly done that throughout this tournament -- even with the early ankle injury -- including the marathon win over Lauren Davis and that semifinal epic against Angelique Kerber .

But this is a final, and memories of last year's championship match from the French Open, when she was up a set and 3-0 against Jelena Ostapenko before succumbing, might linger.

Continue to step inside the court and aggressively attack when she gets the short ball, particularly off the forehand wing.

(2:06)ESPN's Stephanie Brantz and Patrick McEnroe look ahead to the women's final showdown between Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep.
