Today will be the first time that Paula Padusa and Victoria Azarenka will meet in an official match. There is no precedent, but it is no mystery that the Belarusian is a great tennis player who, while no longer at her best, could put the Spaniards in trouble.
“To end the year like this is a dream come true,” said Paula Padusa, who could win the first 1,000 WTAs of her career tonight, after confirming her presence in today’s Grand Final.
Paula Padusa reached the Grand Final in Indian Wells playing a great tennis ball. He made his debut against Diana Yastremska, who beat him 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 suffering more than expected, but from the round of 32, he no longer gave up a single set.
2021 is unforgettable for Paula Padusa. The Spaniard has made sure to enter the Top 20 for the first time in her career when this new edition of Indian Wells comes to an end. And while it was unimaginable in January, in a few weeks he could play the WTA Finals, holding the best rackets in the world.
However, if Paula Padusa wants to raise the first 1000 WTAs of her career, she will have to work hard. In front of her will be Victoria Azarenka, currently ranked 32 in the world, but for almost a decade she was the best player on the planet.
When she qualified for the Indian Wells final today, Paula Padusa became the first Spanish player in 25 years to reach the final round of the U.S. Championship. In 1996 Conchita Martinez did it.
Today could be a great day for Spanish tennis. Catalan Paula Padusa, who will run in the 2021 tournament she will always remember, managed to qualify for the Indian Wells Grand Final, one of the most important and complex tournaments on the calendar.
Good evening, and welcome to our live coverage of Match for History: The Women’s Final for one of the most important WTA 1000 tournament on the calendar, Indian Wells, with Spanish participation.
Catalan Paula Padusa will play her framing championship and tonight will play the first WTA 1000 final of her career. There is no doubt that the year of the Spaniards is amazing.
