The held an excellent course at Indian Wells and now the time has come for the final (17/03/24, 20:00, LIVE from, where she will face her, with the goal of winning the title in the 100-year California tournament. Having changed coach and with David Whit now on her side, Maria Sakkari makes the best appearances of the year and has the opportunity to claim the third trophy of her career. Her opponent in the Indian Wells final, however, is the No.1 of the women’s world tennis ranking, the awesome Iga Sfiontek. The leading Greek tennis player is even a second time in her career in the Indian Wells final and has again rivaled 22-year-old Pole, who defeated her in California in 2022 and won the tournament title. Two years later, the two tennis players will be faced for the 6th time in their careers, with Sakkari having the 3–2 lead, but the holder of four Grand Slams having won the last two and the 2022 Indian Wells final, with a comfortable 2-0 set (6–4, 6-1). The Greek champion (No9 in the world) will thus be the underdog, but she will have less “pressure”, which has often stood in the way for her in the courtesies. The goal of course is the second title in a 1000-yard tournament after last year in Guadalajara, with the big game at Indian Wells scheduled for 20:00 Greek time.
