In 2021 appeared Barbora Krejcikova, it is the turn of Muchova, another product of the prolific and academic Czech school. This was only his third professional final, with a title, at Seoul 2019.
A talent from the lower categories, his career was punished many times by injuries. He left Roland Garros in a wheelchair twelve months ago after twisting an ankle. He came back to defeat the Belarusian in the semifinals Aryna Sabalenka25 years old and world number 2, by 7-6 (5), 6-7 (5) and 7-5 in 3h.13′.
Sabalenka he endured the rivalry in scuffles with the Ukrainians and the press during the competition, until he saw the Suzanne Lenglen Cup and the world No. 1 too close against an opponent he should theoretically beat easily. He does not know how to live in that condition as a favorite, thinking that his place is to fight all on one card with Iga Swiatek.
At 5-2 in the third set, Sabalenka lost 13 of 15 points, setting herself up for disaster. No wonder he broke the mental barrier of being a Grand Slam champion at the Australian Open. Nerves cheated him in Paris, where he never got past the third round.
