Maria Sakkari deservedly won the right to play in the final tournament in Guadalajara. On the account of the sixth racket of the world, there is not a single title won in 2021. But at the same time, she spent the year very evenly and steadily.
The last time Maria was on the court was in October at the Kremlin Cup. At those competitions, she managed to get to the semifinals, but due to injury, Sakkari was unable to complete the match against Alexandrova. Since then, the representative of Greece has recovered, flown to Guadalajara in advance, adapted and is ready to show her best.
Maria is well acquainted with her opponent in the starting fight in Mexico. In 2021, she twice beat Iga Swiatek and did not give up a single set on clay in Paris (6-4, 6-4) and in the hall in Ostrava (6-4, 7-5).
Iga Swiatek is approaching the start in Guadalajara in the status of the ninth racket of the world. The Polish tennis player won two titles this season but was not very stable. After the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, Iga has not won more than three matches in the tournament bracket in any of the tournaments.

The last time Swiatek played was in early October in Indian Wells. After two confident victories over Martich and Kudermetova, she failed in the 1/8 finals with Jelena Ostapenko (4-6, 3-6). In the upcoming match, the rivals are comparable in their class, which is reflected in the odds of the bookmakers. At the same time, Sakkari is on the side of the factor of two victories this year in personal meetings on different surfaces. We give our preference to Maria’s success.

The opponents played 22 games on the fast surface in the Ostrava hall, which we are waiting for today in Guadalajara. The second bet – a total of over 21 games with the odds of 1.75.
