Maria managed to overcome the obstacles of British tennis player Johanna Konta and to grab the title of Grand Prix SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem of Rabat in 2019. Although in the first and half second set she was not so good form, proved that when you believe in yourself, you can do the impossible. Sakkari won 10 of the 11 games, pushing the 27-year-old Konta to act wrong.
The 23-year-old Greek champion won the title of the “Princess” of the Morocco Open and her first WTA title in her career, winning against Johanna Konta with 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the Morocco Open final.
