Third favourite Gauff sees off Jabeur
  • 50th win of season for Gauff
  • US Open winner needs less than an hour for win
  • Swiatek comes back to win

Coco Gauff, the US Open champion, demonstrated her formidable form at the WTA Finals, dispatching Ons Jabeur in just 57 minutes in her tournament opener. The third-seeded American surged ahead, claiming the first seven games before a brief rain delay halted play in Cancun, Mexico.

Following the resumption, Gauff swiftly closed out the match with a scoreline of 6-0, 6-1, securing her 50th win of the season.

In another captivating encounter from Group B, Iga Swiatek demonstrated her resilience by overcoming a 5-2 deficit in the opening set against Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova. The Pole, who is aiming to regain her world number one ranking from Aryna Sabalenka, clinched a hard-fought first set in a tiebreak (7-6, 7-3) before surging to a dominant 6-0 victory in the second set.

Although Vondrousova, making her debut at the season-ending Finals, twice served for the first set, Swiatek took command of the match, leaving her opponent unable to mount a response.

Betting Implications

At the time of writing Guaff is third favourite to win the title, priced at 4/1 with bet365. The bookie has Swiatek as favourite, 2/1, ahead of Sabalenka 11/4.
