Highs and Lows

As 2022 draws to a close, here are my highlights and low moments for my favourite players. 

Petra Kvitova 

High – Eastbourne title.

Low – Australian Open R1 loss to Cirstea 

Kvitova, Eastbourne champion 2022

That was the year that was..

Sabalenka and Garcia at WTA finals 2022
Aryna Sabalenka and champion Caroline Garcia at the WTA finals in November 2022

So the WTA season 2022 has finally ended. Since the last entry, the main event was the Year End Championships which saw Caroline Garcia top a terrific second half of 2022 with the singles title and a surprise defeat for dominant number 1, Iga Swiatek. My main interest was in the doubles, but sadly ended in a disappointing defeat for my favourite doubles team, Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova. The pair cruised through the group stages and the semi-final and looked on course to retain the title however the team of Elise Mertens and Veronika Kudermatova pipped them at the post in the match tie break of the final.
