It was the eight-seeded Ons Jabeur and twelveth-seeded Jessica Pegula who met in the final of the 2022 Madrid Open. It looked like the Tunisian will be unstoppable in the Spanish capital and she confirmed it with a solid three-set victory in less than two hours.
Pegula had a better start to the match when she broke Jabeur's serve and gained a quick 4-1 lead. She later also had a setpoint, but the Tunisian fought back and eventually won the set 7-5. However, in the second set, the American was unstoppable and won it 6-0 in just 27 minutes.
In a deciding set, it was Jabeur who was dominant this time as she won 7-5, 0-6, 6-2 to win her second career title and by far the biggest title of her career. Triumph at the 2022 Madrid Open also sends Jabeur to the seventh place of the WTA Rankings what is also her career-high.
