Women’s tennis, increasingly logical: the data that confirms it in Rome

Aryna Sabalenka (2nd in the world) fulfilled her tasks in the quarterfinals of the WTA 1000 in Rome against the Latvian Jelena Ostapenko (10th) and qualified for the semifinals of the tournament, following in the footsteps of Iga Swiatek (1st) and Coco Gauff (3rd)who on the previous day did the same.

This victory, solid and smooth, gave way to great data which reaffirms the dominance of the three young women, who tournament after tournament give the grade in the WTA and establish themselves as invincible. The thing is that the Foro Italico will have the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of the classification in the semifinals, a situation that did not happenincluding all tournaments (except the WTA Finals), from Roland Garros 2013.

Besides, It will be the second time in the history of the circuit that this statistic occurs in strictly WTA 1000 tournamentswhich only enjoyed the best three on the planet in Dohaalso in 2013, that is, 11 years ago, when the Belarusian Victoria Azarenka (1st), the American Serena Williams (2nd) and the Russian María Sharapova (3rd) they reached that phase, an event that would ultimately remain in Vika’s domain.

The same protagonists, undisputed stars in those years, were the last to achieve the aforementioned mark, which will only be repeated in 2024. That time, in Paristhe second Grand Slam of the season, the podium had rotated and it was the youngest of the Williams sisters the leader of the classification, who would become champion against the guard, Sharapovawith partials of 6-4 and 6-4.

In this way, Rome will have crosses of excellence in search of the decisive contest. Swiatek will face Gauffwhile Sabalenka waits for her rival, who will emerge from the match between Azarenka herself (24th), still in force, and the American Danielle Collins (15th).
