WTA Finals 2022: Aryna Sabalenka takes down Iga Swiatek, the highlights

Aryna Sabalenka was good at interpreting the challenge in the right way in the semifinals at the WTA Finals 2022 in Forth Worth, removing points of reference from the world number one Iga Swiatek, but above all in making an ultra-aggressive tactical plan in an attempt to reduce the number of prolonged rallies.

Despite the 2/15 with the second serve, the Belarusian's tennis works perfectly and the initial 6-3 photographs the situation perfectly. Inevitable the reaction of Swiatek, who splashes on 4-0 and squanders a ball for 5-0.

She gets distracted for a moment, leaves one of the two breaks available on the street, but she still reunites the challenge with a 6-2 and she pushes the question to the third set. When logic seems to be pushing in the direction of the Polish no.1, things change completely.

Swiatek dirties the notebook with two double fouls in the fourth game and completely loses the forehand. Sabalenka, attentive and above all more lucid in her tactical choices, takes advantage of the situation in a practically perfect way and seals her most prestigious career success at 6-2 2-6 6-1.
