Finally after several days of waiting and continuing anxiety to understand the evolution of the season, the tennis year 2021 has officially begun! It starts with the WTA Tour, and the WTA 500 tournament in Abu Dhabi, where there are many stars, such as Sofia Kenin, seed no.1, Garbine Muguruza, Elina Svitolina, Cori Gauff and Karolina Pliskova.
The Greek Maria Sakkari defeated the American Sofia Kenin in three sets, with the final score of 2-6 6-2 6-0, recovering the disadvantage of the starting set, won by the champion of the Australian Open 2020. Now Sakkari will meet Aryna Sabalenka in the semifinal.
