Karolina Muchova failed to win the first WTA 1000 tournament of her career in Cincinnati, The Czech qualified for the Western & Southern Open final by playing long games and defeating two top 10 players, Maria Sakkari and Aryna Sabalenka: Muchova was not at her physical best in the final and made several unforced errors. The service was not working In general, a lot of points are lost on the first serve, as well as games at the net.
Coco Gauff celebrates the biggest success of her career in front of her fans. Muchova is one of the most popular tennis players on Tour due to her flamboyant playing style, which is characterized by frequent turnarounds, net play, and aggression found on the WTA Tour. In an interesting interview with Vogue, Karolina talked about the differences between men’s and women’s tennis, highlighting how WTA tennis is becoming more enjoyable. Let’s try to analyze this question.
Men’s tennis and women’s tennis differ in many respects and their popularity and media coverage is roughly equal.
But, on court, the media, insiders, fans and the public are taking more pleasure in watching, for example, a potential final between Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz, or between Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka…
Both would be interesting challenges, with a lot to think about. The last two games between Noll and Carlitos (Wimbledon and Cincinnati) have been great, but the third game might not be as exciting. Otherwise it’s in for a potential women’s final that seemed somehow the day before, and indeed, an extraordinary comparison could see the light of day.
Challenges between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal weren’t always spectacular and fun, challenges between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova weren’t always more stoic.
Then everything depends on the heroes, on people able to attract the attention of the media and the crowd. A Grand Slam final between two greats like Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki, perhaps at Flushing Meadows, could certainly be more anticipated than, for example, between two other tennis players who are not Djokovic, Alcaraz, Sinner or Rooney. .
Muchova: “Women’s tennis is becoming more enjoyable”
In an interview with Vogue, Muchova said, “The difference in prices between men and women? It’s something I can’t influence.
I understand the organizers have signed contracts and new television rights. For a long time, men’s tennis was considered more glamorous, but it seems to me that women’s tennis has become more fun and unpredictable.
Stadiums are starting to fill up, we saw it during the Roland Garros final.” “During my career, I worked with three mental coaches, I had to change something: the problem was internal.
No one inspired me to do this and it helped me a lot. Mental attitude is generally the key to success in tennis, you must be prepared to face any difficult situation.
I reduced my training a bit, it was too much and my body was not responding that way anymore. Since the start of the season, I’ve only surrounded myself with people I’m happy with and trust.”
