Day 3 of the WTA Finals promises to deliver thrilling action for the fans. The home crowd has plenty to look forward to as home favorites Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula will compete in singles and doubles.
Day 3 will see World No. 2 Ons Jabeur take on Pegula. Pegula suffered a defeat at the hands of Maria Sakkari in her opening fixture on Monday. Though the 28-year-old went down in straight sets, she put in a decent performance on the night. Things were no different for Jabeur as she endured a loss in her first match against Aryna Sabalenka.
The second singles fixture on Day 3 will be contested between Sakkari and Sabalenka. The two players are brimming with confidence, having out-classed their higher-ranked opponents on Monday. Sabalenka leads the head-to-head against Sakkari 4-2. However, the Greek won their previous encounter at the same event in 2021.
In doubles action, the Czech pairing of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova will square off against Xu Yifan and Yang Zhaoxuan of China. The second doubles fixture will witness Jessica Pegula and Coco Gauff locking horns with Desirae Krawczyk and Demi Schuurs, with both teams needing a win to stay alive in the competition.
