Cori Gauff and Aryna Sabalenka played an incredible marathon in Toronto on Thursday. Eventually, it was the young American player to win the contest after more than 3 hours. Nevertheless, there was one statistic which was incredible and that was the combined amount of double faults: 33 (18 from Sabalenka and 15 from Gauff).
Indeed, both Aryna Sabalenka and Coco Gauff are the leaders of the not-so-great log of the players who have committed more double falls in 2022. As of now in 2022 at WTA level, Aryna committed 275 double faults in 35 matches (the leader in the log), Coco 159 on 41 matches.
