Maria Sakkari has made a positive start to her campaign as she defeats Polish youngster Iga Swiatek 6-2, 6-4 in 1 hour and 26 minutes to pick up a win in her debut at the Finals. Sakkari has been in great form lately and has been one of the most consistent players this season on the WTA Tour and has continued her momentum in Mexico as well as she made easy work of Swiatek.

Paula Badosa picks up her 2nd biggest career win as she defeats World No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka in the first round-robin match. Badosa won the tie 6-4, 6-0 in 1 hour and 16 minutes to defeat Sabalenka for the 2nd time in 3 months this season and pick her 5th Top-10 win of the season. Badosa last played at the 2021 Indian Wells winning the title and looks to continue ahead in a similar manner.

Maria will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 14-11 and is 5-2 on the surface this season while having a season record of 37-18 across all surfaces. Paula will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 25-16 and is 4-3 on the surface this season and has a 42-15 record for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their recent form and performances in the past few weeks, it will be difficult to predict an outright winner as both the players have played some sensational tennis lately. However, given Badosa’s recent run and a rampant win in the previous match, she might just have a slight edge to clinch another Top-10 victory.

Prediction: Paula Badosa to win in 3-sets.
