WTA Finals Cancun Day 2

by Alain Chivilò

 

GNP Seguros, WTA Finals, Cancun, Mexico, 2023.

A second day in two sets. Few words, ready play and boxing. Merciless as you like this term. It is important to play as little as possible on the court.

Chetumal Group, standings: Iga Swiatek, Coco Gauff, Ons Jabeur, Marketa Vondrousova.

Iga Swiatek wins in two sets 7/6 (3), 6/0 vs Marketa Vondrousova in 1.38 H.

Balanced first set in the game with initial aggressiveness by Vondrousova who always took forward serving for the set. Swiatek initially had to find the geometries of the court according to her shots, always chasing. 3/5 for both in break points won. At 6-6 Iga accelerated effectively while Marketa conceded. Second set: the Czech suffered a lot from the constant pressure of the Polish who led easily.

Cori Gauff 6/0, 6/1 vs Ons Jabeur in 0.30 H.

The scoreboard is very clear. Possible bad day for Ons even if she tried to play. Gauff’s effectiveness was clinical. Jabeur won’t be like that on Wednesday, in another very difficult match.

The first two places appear only for two players.

In doubles:

– Maya Ka’an Group, Sanders-Mertens 6/4, 6/2 vs Aoyama/Shibahara in 1.16 H.
