Sabalenka turned a 2-5 residue in the first set against the number two of the set list. Also in Tiebreak, the 2021 finalist was 1: 4. Her runload loss at the beginning of the second sentence, she immediately made her up and used her first matchball after 1:40 hours. Last year, Sabalenka had missed the title win in the most important German women's tennis tournament against the Australian Ashleigh Barty in the final.

The hopes for the first German semi-finish since 2017 had not fulfilled. Laura Siegemund, who celebrated the tournament victory five years ago, was excreted in the quarterfinals as the last German participant against Samsonova. For Angelique Kerber, the finest-out of the tournament doped with 611 210 Euro meant another setback this season.
