How did your lips play in Madrid in 2021?
Sabalenka will defend the title. In last year’s final, she defeated Belarusian women’s WTA ranking leader Ashleigh Barty.
And it was the Australian who stopped your lips in the third round. This means that this time the Pole will defend only 120 points. This shouldn’t be a problem for her, so the already massive advantage in this arrangement should be increased.
