Sakkari won only one game as she was thrashed by the World Number One to open up her WTA Finals campaign 6-0, 6-1 to Sabalenka. From one of her career highlights which saw her lift Guadalajara last month to a lowlight in Mexico, she said she won't be the first or last to cry on court.
Aryna Sabalenka's unstoppable performance demolishes Maria Sakkari in a one-sided contest at WTA Finals
She said that she wasn't feeling comfortable and didn't feel great to be subjected to such a thrashing. Next up is a match up she has never played in Elena Rybakina who like Sakkari lost on the opening day of action.
“I don’t have much to say.. I think it was pretty obvious I wasn’t feeling my game & wasn’t feeling comfortable out there. Just a very, very bad day at the office. I just don’t think that I’m the first or the last person that has felt this way on the court or has cried on the court. It’s not nice. But no one likes to get chopped on the court.”
