Samsonova is about to clinch another WTA 500 title
Both ... spaniards?!?The first set was so-so for Liudmila. But gosh, so good in the second. Another SF for her. Really nice!
Zhang won't be scared of her serve after facing Garcia though.
Garbiñe was just pushing without any intent. Once Samsung settled...game over. Both spaniards are having the same issues. Sad to see. But they'll come back, I'm sure.
Yes, she currently lies 47th in the race so her goal this year is not to qualify for YEC or even stay in the top 20 but to try and get enough points from San Diego and Guadalajara to stay in the top 32 seeding range for the AO.Muguruza barely mixes anything up so she was hitting right into Samsonova’s firing range. Add the confidence level to the mix and the result was always going to be one. I admire Muguruza’s perseverance this year but she just be surely tired of this season. Probably her worst since she came on the scene. Once Chicago and especially YEC pts come off she won’t be even in the AO seeding range.
Her whole career has been based on luck and fraudulenceMuguruza was lucky to get 100 points for beating Papamichail, that and a couple of other wins based off a high seeding soften the ranking drop a bit, because her season was truly horrifying. I can't really remember her beating anyone of note throughout the year...
She's around 250 points away from the current #32. Without a deep run in Guadalajara or winning a WTA500 there's a very good chance she will miss out on a seeding at AO2023.Yes, she currently lies 47th in the race so her goal this year is not to qualify for YEC or even stay in the top 20 but to try and get enough points from San Diego and Guadalajara to stay in the top 32 seeding range for the AO.
