Aryna Sabalenka won the women' singles Mutua Madrid Open 2021 by beating Ashleigh Barty in three sets, with the final score of 6-0 3-6 6-4. She dominates the first set, she goes out in the heart of the second and restores the advantage in the final rush.
So Aryna breaks down Ashleigh's stamina, as she didn't lose a Charleston match. Among other things, she also avenged the misstep in the final in Stuttgart a few weeks ago. The Belarusian tennis player won after almost two hours of play and enriches her career title collection with the eleventh trophy Nothing to do for the number one in seeding, short of ideas in the initial phase and obviously also of energy in the final part.
Together with one of her most prestigious titles, Sabalenka considerably improves the best ranking and reaches the fourth position in the world. The third position occupied by Simona Halep is just over four hundred points. In the men's singles, after Fabio Fognini, Federico Delbonis and Christian Garin, Italian Matteo Berrettini, already sure of the ninth position in the ranking - also beats Casper Ruud to reach the 2021 Mutua Madrid Open final.
Thanks to an impeccable performance with the available serve, Matteo won 6-4 6-4 on the threshold of two hours of play and reaches Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem's executioner. The Austrian is not enough for this Alexander Zverev.
This, simplistically, is the reason for the 6-4 6-3 which matures at the threshold of ninety minutes of play. The 2018 champion manages the matter perfectly thanks to 79% of the points with the first ball and above all he smears three breaks in a surgical way.
One in the inaugural stage, two in the second. Sascha catches the twenty-fourth final in his career, the number eight in the category, but above all consolidates his sixth position in the ranking.
