Aryna Sabalenka, 22-year-old who is said to be a future Grand Slams champion – events in which he has been disappointed – closed the WTA season domestically this Sunday, winning at the Linz International, Austria, his third title of the season and eighth of the professional career. The east player closes the season with two consecutive titles (after Ostrava), 9 consecutive victories and within the top 10 WTA, taking the North American out of that lot Serena Williams.
In a final between two great friends and peer partners – they won the US Open in 2019 – the Belarusian defeated the Belgian Elise Mertens, number 21 WTA and one of the tennis players in better shape in this atypical 2020, by 7-5 and 6-3, after 1h45, in a duel in which she ended up overtaking a very complicated rival that she knows very well. This was the last meeting of the WTA season in 2020, after the WTA Finals and the entire Asian season were canceled.

Mertens, despite the defeat, managed to fulfill one of his goals when traveling to Linz: he moved up to the 20th WTA position, deservingly closing the season in the top 20.
