To validate her qualification, the number one player in France is going to compete in the WTA 1000 in Guadalajara the following week.
Will the hit of the summer also be a hit in the fall? In recent weeks, the record has picked up a few scratches here and there. Danielle Collins, who came in second place in the last Australian Open and was competing in the WTA 500 competition in San Diego, was eliminated in the first round of play. The French number one had also lost entering Tokyo in September against the Chinese Shuai Zhang, in three sets 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), and 7-6 (7/5). The match had started with 6-2, 7-6 (7-4). The most successful player on the circuit this summer, with no fewer than three trophies (Bad Hombourg, Warsaw, and Cincinnati) and 31 triumphs in 36 matches between her coronation in Germany and her elimination in the semi-finals of the US Open, however, continues to do very well for herself. placed in the final sprint to win her sesame for second participation in the Masters after the 2017 edition, in which she had reached the semi-finals of the competition. From the 31st of October to the 7th of November, the state of Texas will play host to the season’s final significant event in Fort Worth.
The Guadalajara tournament, which started being contested on Monday, is what serves as the judge and jury in this case. In Mexico, 17 of the world’s best players will compete in the Masters 1000 tournament, which awards a large number of points. The stakes will be high in this event. Additionally, the WTA website claims that they are not any less than… There are 17 players who, according to the numbers, still have a chance to be cut. 17 players will compete for five spots in a tournament that will put the year’s top eight players against each other. The tournament will be distributed among 17 players.
There are already three of those who have guaranteed themselves a spot. The current uncontested number one in the world, Iga Swiatek, as well as his runner-up, Ons Jabeur, who was a finalist at both Wimbledon and the US Open this year, and Jessica Pegula, who punched her ticket at this week’s tournament in San Diego. Coco Gauff is close to reaching her goal. Caroline Garcia too. The Lyonnaise, who turned 29 years old on Sunday anniversary, is currently ranked sixth in the Race ranking. Unlike the WTA ranking, the Race ranking takes into account a player’s points accumulated over an entire year rather than comparing those points to the points accumulated in the previous year. She was surpassed by Aryna Sabalenka in San Diego, but she still has a 290-point advantage over Russian Veronika Kudermetova. Kudermetova, who recently hurt her shoulder and was the final player nearly qualified, was the last player virtually qualified. The Greek player Maria Sakkari, who is 359 points behind her, continues to be the most dangerous opponent for the French team. Simona Halep, whose season came to an end, is no longer in the running for the title. In a nutshell, Garcia has a foot and a half of a chance in Texas, barring the occurrence of an extremely bad confluence of events. It is necessary to find a means to win at least one of its remaining matches to absolutely validate its qualifying and bring to a close a 2022 season that got off to a poor start in the greatest way possible.
During the summer, the tenth-ranked player in the world discovered a style of tennis that works exceptionally well for her. She has made significant progress. Instead of participating in the Fallout in the Spring at the 75e, she was still using crutches in March owing to a foot injury she sustained (torn fascia). ” We were forced to start again from scratch one step at a time. Every time I walked onto the court, I started to jump since the pain in my leg was still present. I was unable to maintain my composure any longer. She reported to the Team that after ten minutes, she began to cry. I was no longer able to put up with this constant discomfort. The pain is the worst of it. The exhausting part is living with it. You convince yourself that you are not going to make it, which was not clear from the outside since I managed to make matches, such as in Lyon, when I went to the semis, even though I was not going to make it (early March). When my relatives observed that I was in a state of misery, they decided to take care of me so that I might return “when I would be able to accomplish anything.” She has since demonstrated that she has once again become a top player by having a good foot and an excellent eye. After the current season, confirmation is anticipated.
