The Chilean Alexa Guarachi advanced to the semifinals of the doubles draw at the WTA 500 tournament in Adelaide, Australia, pairing with American Desirae Krawczyk.
The Chilean (26th in the world in the specialty) and the Californian (25th) had to use extreme resources in the round of eight to account for the local couple composed of Abbie Myers (258 °) and Ivana Popovic (407 °), with partials of 4-6, 6-7 (3) and 10-7.
For the ticket to the final of the oceanic contest, the finalists of last year’s Roland Garros will be measured at the duo made up of Americans Kaitlyn Christian (62nd) and Sabrina Santamaria (76th).
Alexa Guarachi has a singles title and 22 doubles in her career. The last celebration was on September 13, 2020 at the WTA doubles in Istanbul.
