Iga Sibiontech (22, Poland) and Karolina Muhova (26, Czech Republic, world ranking 43rd) will face off for the women’s singles title at this year’s French Open. Sibiontech beat Beatrice Adad Maia (27, Brazil, 17th in the world) 2-0 (6-2 7-6 <9-7>) in the women’s singles semifinals of the 2023 Roland Garros French Open tennis tournament in Paris, France, on the 9th. Defending champion Sibiontech reached the final of the French Open for the second consecutive year. Having won his first Grand Slam title at the 2020 tournament, he will challenge for the third time.
In addition, Sibiong Tech, who won the US Open last year, is aiming to win its fourth major tournament. She has maintained the world No. 1 ranking in women’s tennis for more than a year. Sibiontech has also made it to the finals for the second consecutive year since Simona Halep (32, Romania) reached the finals of the French Open in 2017 and 2018. Adad Maia reached the semifinals for the first time in a major tournament. Prior to the French Open, he made the finals of the 11th Grand Slam tournament, but never made it to the third round.
Adad Maia is a Brazilian female player who reached the semifinals of a major tournament for the first time in 55 years since Maria Bueno, who reached the semifinals at the 1968 U.S. Open. Adad Maia, who met Sibiong Tech on the threshold of the final, took the opportunity to take the lead in the second set. He reached the five-point mark first at the tiebreak point, but failed to advance to the final as he fell behind in a last-minute fight. 스포츠토토
Sibiongtech will play muhova in the final instead of their biggest rival Arina Sabalenka (25, Belarus, world No. 2). In the semifinals held earlier, Muhova defeated Sabalenka, the winner of this year’s Australian Open, 2-1 (7-6<7-5> 6-7<5-7>5-7) after a bloody battle for 3 hours and 13 minutes. Muhova reached the final of a major tournament for the first time. It reached the semifinals at the 2021 Australian Open and advanced to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2019 and 2021.
After finishing the US Open in 2021, he was unable to stand on the court for nearly half a year due to a back injury. Muhova, who revived splendidly in this competition, will meet Sibiong Tech, the current strongest player. The two competed once at the 2019 Prague Open in the Czech Republic. At that time, Muhova came from behind to win 2-1 (4-6 6-1 6-4). The women’s singles final will be held on the night of the 10th in Korean time.
