Re: Bucharest SF: Patricia Țig [Q] solves Siegemund , 6-3 6-1, to reach 2nd WTA fi
I was under the impression she got a MD WC here but no, it was a WC for qualies, so this is her 7 win in a row here. This is a player who two years ago left the sport to deal with her health, made a baby along the way and now at just 24 is back and made the final of the first singles WTA main draw she's played since 2017. She was unranked at the start, now she is one win away from a title. Why aren't more talking about this? Why is the WTA not making a thing out of this? I mean the story writes itself here.
Anyway couldn't watch the match (have yet to even see a second of her play) but from everything I've heard and this score she could be one of the year's revelations. Does she also do well on hard? Sure hope this is not one of those one and done things.
I mean seriously when's the last time an unranked player who came through qualifying through a WC made the final of a WTA tournament? And what if she wins it? This is a good storyline, WTA should definitely do something with it.
