On the eve of the start in Guadalajara, Garbine Muguruza was not considered by the bookmakers as the favourite of the tournament. Moreover, the Spanish tennis player had a bad start in the group, being defeated by Karolina Pliskova (6-4, 2-6, 6-7).
Nevertheless, the experienced Spaniard did not give up and managed to win the next two matches in the group stage. Barbora Krejcikova was defeated in three sets (2-6, 6-3, 6-4). In the defining match for the right to play in the semifinals, Garbine managed to interrupt a streak of 12 victories for Kontaveit (6-4, 6-4).
In the semifinals against her compatriot Paula Badosa, Muguruza was not the favourite. However, this did not prevent her from having a flawless match and gaining an important victory with a score of 6-3, 6-3. Note that in that fight, Garbine played very confidently on her serve. The opponent had only three break points and did not convert any of them.

Anett Kontaveit approached the start in Guadalajara amid titles in Moscow and Cluj-Napoca. In Mexico, the Estonian tennis player fully demonstrated that she did not lose her form in the first two matches.
After victories over Barbora Krejcikova in the first two matches(6-3, 6-4) and Karolina Pliskova (6-4, 6-0), Anett secured her place in the semifinals. The final game in the group against Garbine Muguruza had no tournament value for Kontaveit. This, to some extent, affected her motivation and led to the loss (4-6, 4-6).
In the semifinals against Sakkari, it was not possible to play the entire match smoothly and stably. Moreover, after the exchange of sets in the decisive game, Anett lost with a break. Only when the score was 2-3, she really returned to the game and won four games in a row (6-1, 3-6, 6-3).
Anett Kontaveit is playing powerfully in the final segment of the season and has not slowed down at all in Guadalajara. The defeat from Muguruza in the group stage was largely due to the motivation factor. There is no doubt that the final will be in an outrageous mood.
