Badosa's win over Sakkari was her 43rd win of the year, passing Ashleigh Barty for fifth-most on the women's tour.

The champion at Indian Wells, Paula Badosa has won her last eight matches as of November 14, and she hasn’t dropped a set in her wins over Aryna Sabalenka and Maria Sakkari at the WTA Finals, where she's qualified for the knockout stage. Her breakthrough season got off to a solid if unspectacular start, but recent runs and results have had us rethinking her future. Garbine Muguruza, 28, has long been at the top of Spain’s WTA heap. But with her stellar 2021, the 24-year-old Badosa looks poised to challenge her for that spot, and for major titles, in 2022.
