Coco Gauff and Iga Swiatek Rule at the WTA Finals

There are already two clear leaders in the Chetumal Group at the WTA Finals 2023. These leaders aren’t so much ahead in points but in terms of how well they played in the two matches that were held. In Cancun, Iga Swiatek beat Marketa Vondrousova in straight sets in her first match. The score was 7-6, 6-0.

The Roland Garros winner got off to a rough start as she fell behind 2–5 in the first set. Her flaws were more than the Czech tennis player’s strengths, who didn’t give up much to her opponent anyway. In the end, though, Swiatek quickly came back, and the match went to a tie-break.

In this case, too, the beginning says Vondrousova, and the end says, Swiatek. The set goes to the Polish tennis player after the seventh seed makes a double mistake. After a first set of light and dark, Swiatek feels better about herself and does what she does best: she slams her foe with a bagel.

Gauff rips Ons Jabeur

The other leader of the group is the other Slam winner this year. That’s Coco Gauff, and she wants to end this season with a great ending. Ons Jabeur was the last player to qualify for the WTA Finals in Cancun. The American tennis player beat her 6-0, 6-1.

The winner of the US Open is the main character in the third of four matches that make up this event. She is the first teenager to win a Finals match since Venus Williams. It was always clear who won: in the last game of the match, three break points were given up and then saved.

Something that is both a subject and a child of numbers. Not a very high number of first serves, but 81% of points were won with the first serve and 64% with the second serve, which gave them an edge over Ons Jabeur, who wasn’t in the best shape at the end of the season.

It was thought that Gauff and Swiatek would do well in this group, and they are. Not only the group, but they are also the favorites to win the year-end Master with Aryna Sabalenka.
