Martina Trevisan and Claire Liu meet in the final of the 2022 tennis Morocco Open.

Martina Trevisan is coming off a straight set win over Lucia Bronzetti that took 18 games to decide. In the victory, Trevisan won 77 percent of her first serve points and 36 percent of her second serve points. Trevisan won 68 percent of her total service points and converted on four of her seven break points. Trevisan got 78 percent of her first serves in play and faced just one break point. Trevisan has won eight of her nine sets this tournament, and has also won each of her last five sets. Trevisan has a chance to win her first ever WTA singles title, as this is her first ever final appearance. Trevisan has won five of her last seven matches on clay court.

Claire Liu is coming off a walkover victory over Anna Bondar, so she should be well rested and fresh for the biggest match of her life. Liu is in her first ever WTA singles final appearance and a victory here would be a great early birthday present with her turning 22 years old next week. Liu has won six of her seven sets this tournament and is coming off a win where she lost a combined five games. Liu has won eight straight played matches, easily the best stretch of her young career, and she’s moved her way inside the top 100 in the world. Liu has a chance at back-to-back titles, with her just winning the WTA 125 Paris in challenger play. Liu has won eight straight matches on clay court.

There’s no match history between these two players.

Nerves are sure to play a role in this contest, as neither of these players have been in this position before. You can make a case for either side, but I do lean Liu, with her winning each of her last eight played matches and having the rest advantage of not having to play a semifinal match. With rest and form on her side, Liu should win the first title of her career.
