Sara Sorribes is already in the W100 Madrid final. The Spanish tennis player drops the tournament’s number one seed 6-2 and 7-5 to reach the final.
The semi-final day started at ITF W100 Madrid. Only one seed remained in the tournament. It is his rival who would be the only Spanish player still in contention for the tournament. Let’s talk about the topic Leylah Fernandez and Sara Sorribes. The Spaniard did not arrive at the tournament in the best possible mood. She had to drop out in Madrid and in Reus’ WTA125 she was eliminated in the first round. In Madrid, he seems to have found the game needed to achieve great results. The Canadian player, on the other hand, arrived in Madrid after a surprise defeat in Rome against Sasnovich. Prior to this tournament, he had just one win on the clay tour. He’s clearly not having his best year, so if Sorribes continues at the level he’s been playing at, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he beats him.
Sorribes wakes up in time to take the series
The match started with Sara Sorribes being very comfortable with the others. She had three break points, although Leylah managed to save them to score the first game. In service, the Spanish did not finish the game 40-0 and paid dearly, Fernández got to the break by scoring five consecutive points. Sorribes managed to recover the break and would help put the tie on the scoreboard. When parity returned to the scoreboard, the Spaniard proved that the break had been sloppy and managed to break his rival’s serve. He made it 5-2 and ended the set. With an excellent passing game, he managed to close the set.
The Spaniard will reach the final in Madrid
Sorribes started the second period after scoring in the first period. An empty break at the start and in the bid he managed to confirm it after playing four break balls. The set went with a change of breaks. Three consecutive breaks, which the Canadian tennis player survived better, which restored parity on the scoreboard. There were surprisingly no breaks during the set. It was on the verge of a tie when we saw a Spanish break serve to win the game. He was very solid on serve and made the sleeve after three match points.
