Sakkari advances in Moscow and qualifies for the WTA Finals

Maria Sakkari will make her debut at the WTA Finals, in Guadalajara. The world number 7 secured her place in the prestigious year-end event after beating an injured Anna Kalinskaya 6-2, 1-0 and retirement in the second round of the WTA Moscow.

Sakkari, the only Greek woman to have reached the Top 10, continues a great season in which she made her Top 10 debut, reached her first singles final WTA since 2019 in Ostrava and made two Grand Slam semifinals at Roland Garros and the US Open.

The No. 3 seed in the Russian tournament currently in the highest ranking of her career, she has reached the quarter-finals in Moscow in her second tournament appearance, after losing in the first round to former champion Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in 2019.

Sakkari overcame the first set in half an hour and took a service break early in the second set, at which point the qualifier Kalinskaya was deemed unable to continue.
