Before starting in Dubai, Petra Martic has won only two matches at WTA tournaments this season. At the tournament in three days, she surpassed her previous results.
We can’t say that in the first two circles there was too serious a tournament bracket. Initially, in the games against Xie Su-Wei (6-4, 6-3) and Strycova (6-3, 6-3), Martic was a favorite in the line of bookmakers and confirmed this status.
In the quarterfinal, the Croatian tennis player was expected by Anett Kontaveit. Tennis players gave an equal first set, in which Petra played more reliably in a tie-break, and in the second set the Estonian tennis player surrendered (7-6, 6-1).
Martic is 29 years old and she is in 15th place in the WTA ranking. In 2020, the player hasn’t had much success so far, limiting herself to the early stages of tournaments. However, the semi-finals have already been reached at the current tournament in Dubai, and this is by far the most successful tournament for Martic in almost half a year.
There were serious fears that after reaching the final of the tournament in St. Petersburg, Elena Rybakina wouldn’t withstand such a busy schedule of performances. However, the current physical form allows the representative of Kazakhstan to feel confident on the court for two gaming weeks in different conditions.
Complicated rivals were on their way to the semifinals at Rybakina. Already in the first round I had to play against the winner of the Australian Open, Sofia Kenin (6-7, 6-3, 6-3). She immediately passed a real test of strength.
Further it was already easier in the matches with Siniakova (6-3, 6-3) and Plískova (7-6, 6-3). The first serve helped out, rivals unconvincingly acted at a reception. The recession in the game of Elena herself was not in these matches. Only in individual games, when the first serve didn’t go.
Elena continues to amaze. For the second tournament in a row she marks the final. At the last tournament, she only lost in the main match Elise Mertens (0:2), at the current start in Dubai there were already three players.
