The unbeatable in the Poland Open Garcia, Caroline
Garcia has already won two championships this season after going more than three years without doing so.
Prior to Wimbledon, she made her debut this year at the Bad Homburg Open. Overall, the 28-year-old won his ninth championship. For the former world number four who defeated the current number one this week, it had been a very happy week.
Iga Swiatek was one of the final eight. The loss ended the Pole’s string of 18 victories on clay, despite the fact that she was the clear favorite in the competition held in her country. Garcia actually only dropped a set once, in her match against Swiatek.
Caroline Garcia will move up 13 ranks and into position 32 in the WTA rankings on August 1st as a result of her victory at the Poland Open. Ana Bogdan, who had previously never competed in a WTA tournament final, will move up 33 ranks and move into the 59th position.
Bogdan, incidentally, achieved her highest rating of her career in 2018 when she climbed to position 59. The 29-year-old was ranked 108th in the world prior to this week’s competition. Image courtesy of Poland Open Twitter
