    The set was pretty even as both players managed to hold serve with the notable exception of 1 break that the American clinched in the 11th game (6-5) just before finally winning the set (7-5).

    Gauff converted 20% of her break points (1/5). She had 5 break points opportunities in the 3rd (1-1 15-40 and 30-40), the 5th (2-2 40-A), the 9th (4-4 40-A) and the 11th game (5-5 40-A). On the other side, Sabalenka was unable to convert any of her 7 break points. She had 7 break points opportunities in the 4th (2-1 15-40, 30-40, 40-A and 40-A), the 8th (4-3 40-A) and the 12th game (5-6 15-40 and 30-40).

    They contested 99 points. It’s worth to point out that, Cori won this set even if she scored less points 1 than Sabalenka (49-50). The American lost 20 points on serve (29-20). On the other side, Sabalenka conceded 20 points on serve (30-20).
