WTA Finals Cancun Day 5

by Alain Chivilò

 

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

It is possible: rainy days in Mexico between August and November. If you don’t have enough money to travel (considering the dramatic increases in costs over the last six months) you can choose a different period to plan a tour or vacation in Mexico, as in other countries of the world.

Bacalar Group, standings: Aryna Sabalenka, Elena Rybakina, Jessica Pegula, Maria Sakkari.

Jessica Pegula 6/3, 6/2 vs Maria Sakkari in 1.25 H.

The match was close even though the result was two sets. Maria Sakkari fails to conclude the play created in her favor. She also concedes a lot to her opponents. Some statistics: break points won in the two sets 3/4, saved 4/11, 1st serve % approximately 50. In these two months Maria will be able to find formula that combines many sporting components useful for starting again from January 2024. Jessica Pegula is in a tennistic excellent state and played to win as tennis wants. She produced play, always focused and gave almost nothing away. Break points won in the match 7/11, saved 1/4, 1st serve % approximately 50. In the Semifinals, she will be a formidable opponent, always according to.

Due rain, to be continued: Aryna Sabalenka vs Elena Rybakina 6/2, 3/5 after 1.22 H.

Opening set with Aryna to make pressure, 2/5 break points won. Elena zero. Tough second set with breaks and breaks back (1/2 Sabalenka, 2/3 Rybakina). Today, as possible prediction, Aryna will try to keep the 5-5 forcing, Elena should take the lead as soon as possible. Deciding set, if any: playing giving everything for the Semi-finals.

In doubles:

– Maya Ka’an Group:

Sanders-Mertens walked to Semifinals. Third victory: Sanders-Mertens 6/2, 6/3 vs Krawczyk-Schuurs in 1.13 H.

Melichar-Martinez/Perez 4/6, 6/2, 10/6 vs Aoyama-Shibahara in 1.32 H.

A place for the Semifinals is waiting in the last match: Melichar-Martinez/Perez or Krawczyk-Schuurs.
