Swiatek made his second appearance in the WTA Finals, the tournament for the top eight players of the season. Last year, she recorded one win and two losses, and was eliminated from the group stage.

At that time, she also lost to Sabalenka, but in the current season, the responsibility of coach Tomas Wiktorovsky has beaten the Belarusian four times, including in the semi-finals of the US Open.

This time, Świątek weathered the group stage like a storm, scoring three quick wins without losing a set. From the very beginning she had problems with Sabalenka, who played an unusual card.

The Belarusian woman quickly took the 4:1 lead. She served hard and as many as 82 percent of the first spots hit ended up scoring a point. In the first match alone, she sent five aces.

During the break between sets, Świątek made use of the toilet break. She decided to take the same step in the semi-finals of the US Open, when she also lost the first match. It had an effect again, because in the second set it was the pole advancing at 4:0.

Sabalenka seems to have used almost the entire range of successful plays in the first set. Swiatek let herself in control, which equalized the state of the match.

In the third set, the fourth match was decisive, as Sabalenka scored 2: 1. The 21-year-old from Raszyn, with her own serve, had three balls in the game for 2: 2. In the end, she was overcome.

Sabalenka again began to show her best in tennis and did not even give her opponent a chance to make up for the start. The Belarusian showed another breakthrough in the sixth match, and after a moment she used the ball of the first match.

Throughout the match, Sabalenka made 12 aces, one at Christmas. The Polish women had a little more game wins (26 vs. 23), but there were also non-compulsive fouls (26 vs. 19). The meeting lasted two hours and seven minutes.
