Pegula defeated her compatriot Coco Gauff (WTA 3) in two clear sets in the first semi-final: 6-2 and 6-1. The match lasted 1 hour and 4 minutes. In the second semi-final, as has been the case in Cancun in recent days, the rain played tricks after barely eighteen minutes of tennis. Swiatek was 2-1 ahead in the first set at that time. The Polish woman will further defend her lead on Sunday evening (local time). The final will move to Monday, according to the WTA tennis association.
The 29-year-old Pegula tries to win the fifth WTA title in her career in the final against Sabalenka or Swiatek, the third this year after a final victory in Montreal and Seoul. She also lost finals in Doha and Tokyo in 2023.
The eight best singles tennis players and the eight best doubles duos from the past year participate in the WTA Finals. In the singles, the French Caroline Garcia defeated the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka in the American Fort Worth last year.
