Sabalenka overcomes ‘nemesis’ and advances to first Australian Open singles semifinals… Clash with Lynette

Arina Sabalenka (5th place, Belarus) advanced to the semifinals of the Australian Open (total prize money 76.5 million Australian dollars, about 66.26 billion won) for the first time in her career.

In her singles quarterfinals held at Melbourne Park, Australia on the 25th (Korean time), Sabalenka easily defeated Donna Bekic (64th, Croatia) 2-0 (6-3 6-2).

Sabalenka, who was knocked out in the fourth round in both 2021 and last year, tasted the joy of reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open for the first time.

Her advance to the semifinals of a major tournament is her fourth since Wimbledon in 2021 and the US Open, and the US Open last year.

On this day, Savalenka was ahead of Bekić in most indicators, including sub ace (9-4) and winner (38-21). Previously, she trailed Beckic with 1 win and 5 losses, but on this day, she succeeded in overcoming her natural enemy by showing off her superior skills.

Sabalenka faces Magda Linenette (45th, Poland) in the semifinals on the 26th.

Lynette, who is causing a sensation in this tournament, defeated Carolina Pliskova (31st, Czech Republic) 2-0 (6-3 7-5) in the quarterfinals and settled in the semifinals. 카지노

Sabalenka faced Lynette twice previously and won both.

The winner of the face-to-face match between Sabalenka and Lynette will face off against the winner of the Elena Rivakina (25th, Kazakhstan)-Victoria Azarenka (24th, Belarus) match in the final.

While World No. 1 Iga Sibiong Tech (Poland), considered a strong candidate for the championship, was eliminated in the 4th round, the only player in the top 10 ranked among the players who made it to the semifinals was Sabalenka.
