Zhuhai RR: (6) Elise Mertens def. (9) Maria Sakkari 6-2 3-6 6-1

With this match, Sakkari is eliminated. The final match in the Rose group, Sabalenka vs Mertens, the battle between doubles partners, will decide who proceeds from the group stage.

Aryna has said she didn't like playing against a doubles partner — despite herself being the odds favorite

Really? Only 3 people commenting on this? I like Maria Sakkari and by all accounts she is a nice girl but she is so hilariously negative and down on herself in the OCC. Her coach really is earns his money trying to calm her down. Still remember that match - think it was Saisai - where she moaned that her granny could serve faster!
She is looking a bit rusty which isnít surprising after a lay off with the wrist injury but Mertens definitely let Maria back into a match she should have finished in 2.
Intrigued to see the doubles partners face off. Iíd imagine Mertens and Sabalenka know each other pretty well so it could be good. Mertens CAN be a smart tricky player.

Mertens too consistent for Sakkari. Sakkari didn't know whether to try to stay in points, or end them early, meantime, Mertens gets around the court just as well as her smaller opponent.

Mertens great weakness, I think, is her second serve. She does not like it when her opponent sets a dumpster fire all over it. So is that Sabalenka? Surely Sabalenka knows every inch of Elise's game --
