Another win for her Maria Sakkari, which is in excellent condition!
The Greek champion turned the match with her into a walk Caroline Garcia and defeating her for the second week in a row (2-0 sets), after Guadalajara, qualified for the semi-finals of the Tokyo tournament!
There, he will face her Jessica Pegula, which is in 4th place in the world ranking, with the background of the final and the third trophy in her career!
