Tough match for Sakkari but in the 3rd she was really better
Such a shame Hibi is that much powerless :awww:
Yeah, she really does have some amazing touch and finesse shots and a great deal variety and skill. But as both of you say, sadly, without at least a little bit more power than she currently possesses all those nice qualities still don't add up to being enough to compete regularly at a top 100 level. Mayo doesn't need to hit as hard as the tour's big hitters, she doesn't even need to hit as hard as players like Wozniacki or Kasatkina or Cornet (although obviously if she could that would be to her benefit). But if she is going to establish herself in the top 100 she is going to have to at least hit a little bit harder than she does at the moment. I hope she finds a way because the finesse she brings with her on the court is quite delightful.Hibi is weaponless, but does mix spins nicely.
