Maria Sakkari makes Greeks proud despite loss in Indian Wells final

·

Greek tennis star, Maria Sakkari, went down fighting in her Indian Wells final against Iga Swiatek this morning, but it wasn’t enough to give her the win.

Her performance, which saw her lose to Swiatek in straight sets, still made Greeks proud as Sakkari was the first-ever Greek woman to make it into the Indian Wells final.

The 26-year-old will also move into the top 3 of the WTA world rankings from tomorrow.

Swiatek is the best player in the world at the moment, having reached her 11th consecutive victory on the tour and her second consecutive WTA 1000 title of the season.

More to come.
