What a war of nerves! IgA birthday (In this 1.) was promoted to the semi-finals for the first time US Open After a devastating confrontation with Jessica Pegola (In this 8.), which was automatically supported by the Americans fans. Bulka won the first set with relative ease, 6:3, but in the second set unprecedented things happened: among the 12 matches, there was a break of up to 10. But in the end, Świątek turned out to be better and will play Belarusian Arina Sabalenka (WTA Professional women 6) in the semi-finals.
Świątek has a proper balance with Sabalenka
Both tennis players have faced each other four times so far. And while Sabalenka won the first game (in the 2021 WTA Finals in three sets), this year Šveczyk won all three matches. And certainly, because every match was decided in two groups and with a huge advantage. In the quarter-finals in Doha, she gave her opponents only two and three matches, in the final in Stuttgart, two matches in both groups, and in the semi-finals in Rome only three in the whole match.
Sabalenka on her way to the semi-finals: Catherine Harrison (6:1, 6:3), Kalia Kanepi (2:6, 7:6 (8), 6:4), Clara Borrell (6:0, 6:2) and Daniel Collins (3:6, 6:3, 6:2) – it is noteworthy that only the last player (No. 19) was ranked. On the other hand, Świątek also defeated only one ranked player i.e. Pegula – previously defeated by Jasmine Paolini (6:3, 6:0), Sloane Stephens (6:3, 6:2), Lauren Davis (6:3, 6:4) and Julie Niemeyer (2:6, 6:4, 6:0).
