Sensational! A second Frenchwoman has won the title at the Women’s Masters! On Monday night in Fort Worth, Caroline Garcia pulled off a fantastic coup by winning the final of the WTA Finals against Aryna Sabalenka, 7-6(4), 6-4. Caro Garcia was inspired by Amelie Mauresmo version 2005, the only title of a French player in the Women’s Masters until then. And what a show of strength! The Frenchwoman was simply untouchable, not conceding a single break point, to win the biggest title of her career and enter the history of French tennis: “I’m super proud of my result today and of my 4th place in the world, I’m finishing the year better than I started it”, explained Caroline Garcia after her victory.
I am very proud to succeed Amélie Mauresmo who did it in 2005,” said Caro Garcia to L’Equipe. We have been lucky to have great champions in the past and I am really proud to be part of it. This is the biggest title of my career. I have already won a lot of titles, this year it is the fourth. Every time, whether it’s a 250 or more, it means a lot. There is a lot of work behind it. There are emotions when you have the match point, when you lift the trophy. You have all the memories of all the difficult moments, of the people who supported you. To win the Masters, I won’t say that was the goal at the beginning of the season, but I’m super proud of this year, this week and this final.
On the court, with a broad smile and stars in her eyes, Caro delivered an initial reaction. “Bravo to Aryna and her team. You fought on all points and I’m sure many people loved watching you. Thank you to my entire team, to everyone I shared time with to win this trophy. I think of everyone I met along the way who helped me become a better person and a better player. There were a lot of aces, few rallies, but I hope you enjoyed it. All these experiences have made me a better person,” she said before lifting the trophy in tears.
