The Greek champion, faced her second defeat in a row, this time by Elise Mertens
Sakkari appeared much better than yesterday’s match, and playing particularly well in the second set, managed to equalize. In the last and most critical set, however, she has shown to lose both her strength and her concentration, thus losing the fight to her Belgian rival.
The first place and qualification for the semifinals will now be judged in the last group match between Mertens and Sabalenka.
The experience of participating in such a big tournament is quite important for Sakkari, who is now turning her attention to the next tournaments that follow.
