Coco utterly dominant in that first set. The one-two serve backhand/forehand combination doing most of the damage. One has got to look at her forehand motion in particular to have an idea as to how she generates so much power on her shots despite her relatively small frame. Watch 4-1 (15-15). You got to literally be on your toes and lean into the shot.Wang can be seen here desperately trying to stay in the rally but the power is too much. Cori taking the first set 6-1.
The most intriguing game if the match’s entirety was the fourth game if the second at 2-1 to Wang. A fairly long deuce game which culminated in Coco holding serve but the Chinese would be disappointed not to have broken having had break points.Watch the drop shot made by Coco, you literally needed to be a psychic to have predicted what she was going to do, it was that well disguised. Coco’s confidence was high and in no time she was a break up at 4-2. In the seventh game, Wang had to dig deep into her arsenal of shots that helped her overcome Sloane Stephens in the semis,her movement and forehand shots into the corners. There was no denying GAUFF the first ever Parma Challenger title though. Can the young teenager translate her form on the grand stage next week?
