- WTA Finals Tournament draw
True to herself, in a fine-tuned embodiment of tennis that led her to win two Grand Slam titles and play number 1 in the world, Garbie muguruza did not give option to Paula Badosa and play the next morning (02.30, TVE 1) the final of the WTA Finals. The Spanish semifinal had no greater history than that written in resounding script by the champion this year in Dubai and Chicago. It was the triumph of experience against the push of a newcomer to the elite. He won 6-3 and 6-3, in an hour and 25 minutes, and seek the tenth title of his career.
Sticking to the path of both throughout the last months of the course, Paula Badosa appeared in good spirits, first of her group despite a minor defeat in the last game against Iga Swiatek. Nobody was counting on her in this tournament at the beginning of the course. His season has been a dream. On the other side, Garbie, progressing through the tournament, also offered an outstanding service record. Two majors, two other finals, his time in the attic of the ranking and the added experience of having played the semifinals of the WTA Finals in 2015.
Garbie’s career has been more linear since she raised her head at Indian Wells and Miami in 2013. Paula did not initially respond to the expectations aroused with her win in the junior team at Roland Garros in 2015. She is just 24 years old. with magnificent arguments, but denoted lack of rennet in top-ranking commitments.
Muguruza came out with the loaded shotgun. He tried to intimidate his rival with each blow, also with the rest, and got an early reward with the break in the third game. The Spanish-Venezuelan did not give respite to a Badosa who only had to weather the gale. The champion in 2021 was barely held in Indian Wells and Belgrade, without the personality that she has been showing in a year of continuous ascent.
Very successful with the service, with more order and determination in her game, Muguruza responds better to the demands of the game. It was pure conviction, the firm desire to regain center stage, as he already hinted in his victory against Anett Kontaveit, who will play the second semifinal against Maria sakkari.
Paula lost the first set on her own serve and displayed desperation from the chair. He couldn’t find a way to join the party. Overcome by responsibility, in a state of decomposition, she found two excellent parallel setbacks to save both breaking balls in the second game of the second set. Don’t give in Muguruza, who was sniffing blood. On the fourth chance he got the goal.
Badosa lost his last train in the next game, where he created three chances to break his opponent for the first time in the match. Garbie stirred, indulging in no right to distraction. Badosa just dissolved by giving up his serve once more in the sixth game. It was the day of Muguruza, whose hand did not tremble to return from a 0-30 in the final game and seal the victory. She is the second Spanish finalist of the tournament. Arantxa Snchez Vicario I lost to Steffi graf the 1993 final.
