Second-seeded Aryna Sabalenka reached the semifinals of the US Open for the first time and it became the top favorite from one moment to the next. However, on the other side of the network you will have a frequent commitment to the sensation called Leylah Fernández.
Sabalenka, 23, who was also a semifinalist at Wimbledon this year and is competing for the fourth time at the US Open, has power and experience. At least a little more than that of his next rival.
Fernández, who turned 19 days ago, managed to eliminate favorites such as Elina Svitolina, fifth favorite, after having done it with the defending champion the Japanese Naomi Osaka, third seeded, and Germany’s Angelique Kerber, sixteenth and winner of the Open in 2016.
The duel between the two will be the first they star in the WTA circuit with Fernández as 73rd in the world.
The other semifinal will star Maria Sakkari and Emma Raducanu. Watch the entire US Open on STAR +.
