Sakkari: in matches with Swiatek you need to take advantage of the chances it gives, otherwise it’s “chao-ciao”

The ninth world racket from Greece, Maria Sakkari, spoke about her defeat in the final of the WTA-1000 tournament in Indian Wells (USA).

“You don’t have to play perfectly to beat her, you just have a much smaller chance against her. That’s all.

I think that’s the difference between the top players and the lower ranked players. For example, when you play with Iga, Sabalenka, Rybakina, all the top players, Coco (Gauff), Jess (Pegula), you will have two or three chances in the match and you have to take advantage of them. If you don’t implement them, then, as I say, “ciao-ciao.”

As for Iga, she plays aggressively, but at the same time, reliable. You have to take advantage of the chances it gives you,” Sakkari said at a press conference.

Let us remind you that in the final of the competition the Greek athlete lost to Swiatek with a score of 4:6, 0:6.
