1st set: Swiatek 3-2 Jabeur * (* denotes the next server)
Swiatek wins the first point with a net backhand shot winner. But Jaber, who apparently failed to answer the bell for today’s final and managed to win no more than two points in the first three matches, reclaimed her second, third and fourth win of the match with a score of 15-40 and a double break point. Swiatek saves first, but Jabeur hits in second with a winning forehand from the baseline. We’re back in service for the opening game!
First set: * Swiatek 3-1 Jabeur (* points to the next server)
Jabeur desperately needs a straight hold to settle in this match. She races to 40 love on two unbroken fouls from Swiatek early in the rally and the winner with a forehand at the net, before he makes a double foul and misses in the baseline for 40-30. From there another non-forced bug from Swiatek saves her and she is finally on the scoreboard.

Swiatek opened her second game of serve with a forehand before losing on a 15-man backhand, giving Jaber her second point of the afternoon. Swiatek followed up with the fourth and fifth winners, then finished off control with an 84 mph serve that Jabeur couldn’t get back to playing.
Swiatek breaks in the second half of the first set!
First set: * Swiatek 2-0 Jabeur (* points to the next server)
Tough start for Jaber, who doesn’t move well at all. It lags behind Love-30 after a double fault, then Love-40 and its triple breaking point with a misalignment from baseline. Ranked #5 with a non-forced error follows from the baseline and breaks in love in the opening service game. Not great!

She missed a shot on her first close to the net at the next point, but immediately closed a stress-free fist after winning with a clear backhand to close out a fifteen-stroke run.

tamani karayol He’s more about stylistic compatibility on your hand:
They play different styles, but a common feature is that they have built diverse and sustainable games that offer them a number of different options, making them more adaptable and reliable than their opponents. That was evident on Thursday as Swiatek and Jabeur faced Arina Sabalenka and Caroline Garcia in their respective semi-finals, both contenders resting their success in an all-out attack. When nerves hit, initially for Garcia and while Sabalenka led 4-2 in the third set, neither of them could adapt.
Swiatek is one of the best athletes in the world and possesses some of the most destructive weapons on Earth and is increasingly finding that balance again. In the meantime, Jaber is blessed with a full game and a wide range of shots. She can strangle her opponents with sending and forehand hits, she can chop them to death, drown them with shots, and she has greatly improved her physicality.
In the past, Jabeur had so many choices that it was overwhelming. She often struggled to make the right choices in court. But now she is slowly learning how to use it, adapting in matches and knowing when to be disciplined and play more instinctively. “When I talk to my coach before games, I feel now that I can do everything I can do and what I want to do on the field, which is surprising to me and surprises myself many times,” said the 28-year-old.
Players should be on the field in a little more than half an hour. Lots of time will come every now and then.
