Guarachi's new partner for 2022

Alexa Guarachi (15th in the WTA doubles rankings) had the best season of her career in 2021, campaign that closed it with a historic participation in the WTA Finals in Guadalajara, Mexico, along with the American Desirae Krawczyk.

However, despite the great results, the Chilean decided to do a double next year with Nicole Melichar (12th), who gave details of why they were chosen: “We have known each other for many years, we are both from Florida and we were in similar generations, although she is two years older. If I tell you an age, I think we have known each other since we were about 11 years old. We shared in the youth circuit and I knew of her quality I wrote to her after agreeing not to continue with Demi Schuurs “, Melichar acknowledged in an interview with The Mercury.

“After thinking about it, I made my proposal to Alexa. One thing that I want in a partner and that I have not had in my different partners is someone with good service. When he finished with Demi, I made a list of potential partners and the main criterion was that he had good service. Demi is a great player, she has a lot of good things, but not a great serve. Xu Yifan, another partner I had, didn’t have it either. Alexa meets that primary requirement, “the American added.

He added: “I think we can both help each other. She can help me with her great serve. She plays on the left side and has a powerful backhand. Her forehand is also hard. We both have a powerful serve and we are good at the net. , we like to play there. “

Finally, on the objectives for the season, he said: “We have not talked about that, but I know that you will agree with the three that I propose. Being in the top ten is one of the biggest. But I want to go further, to be among the top five. Another goal to win is to finally win a Grand Slam, and be in the WTA Finals again. “
