WTA Beijing Iga won

by Alain Chivilò

 

WTA 1000. Beijing, China Open 2023.

Very often a final appears easier than expected even if it isn’t. In 1.10 H the number 2 of the seed Iga Swiatek won with a double 6/2 vs Liudmila Samsonova.

One-sided final with Samsonova, without having obtained break points, in a dull performance compared to the previous rounds. Swiatek with confidence, on the other hand, was determined and focused. Returning to an interesting tennis with 100% break points, two in each set, she wins easily.

As considerations written before the US Open 23, only a top and continuous performance in the management of the play can allow to beat the Polish, otherwise down her athletic and tennis qualities.

In the tournament interesting tests with lights but above all shadows by Elena Rybakina, Coco Gauff, Aryna Sabalenka, Jelena Ostapenko, Maria Sakkari and Caroline Garcia.

In doubles in 1.26 H, Sara Sorribes Tormo / Marie Bouzkova down one set win at the deciding set vs Hao Ching Chan / Giuliana Olmos: 3/6, 6/0, 10/4. Alternating final but at distance the Spanish-Czech duo lifts the trophy.
