WTA Finals – Caroline Garcia in the final after a demonstration against Sakkari (6-3, 6-2)

Caroline Garcia (world No. 6) extends her sublime season and climbs to the final of the WTA Masters! Without trembling against Maria Sakkari (n°5), the Lyonnaise swept the Greek in two sets (6-3, 6-2), Sunday in Texas, during an almost one-sided semi-final. After breaking Sakkari twice in the first set, “Caro” rolled out his technical palette to counter the right-handed game plan. The second set will have served as a demonstration, Caroline Garcia displaying a mask of imperturbable concentration.

“At one point, I panicked”: Garcia, a thriller for a half

By beating Maria Sakkari this Sunday, Caroline Garcia becomes the third Frenchwoman to qualify for the Masters final, after Mary Pierce and Amélie Mauresmo. In 2005, Amélie Mauresmo became the first French player to win the tournament, in three sets against… Mary Pierce.

End the season in style

Faced with Maria Sakkari, it must be said that the script was already almost written. On the WTA circuit, the two players had crossed paths twice: in 2017 during the semi-final of the Wuhan tournament, where the Lyonnaise won by an identical score (6-3, 6-2), before winning the competition; then during this season, in the second round of the Cincinnati Master 1000, where “Caro” had fought against the Greek (7-6[7-2]6-7 [6-8]6-1), and had won the final trophy.

On the outskirts of Dallas, in Fort Worth, Caroline Garcia will try to win her second title of the season on American soil. It will not be against Iga Swiatek. The Pole lost to everyone’s surprise in front of Aryna Sabalenka in the other semi-final (6-2, 2-6, 6-1). The Belarusian will thus face the French in the final on the night of Monday to Tuesday (3h).
