Caroline Garcia is in the semifinals of the US Open after a seemingly routine victory over Corey Goff – 6:3, 6:4. However, the Frenchwoman also managed the audience in New York, which has its new favorite in the face of the 18-year-old American.
Considered the successor of Serena Williams, the young Coco boldly entered the top eight of the tournament, but met the tennis player in the best form on the WTA tour.
Garcia won the title in Cincinnati before the US Open, and this morning took victory #13 in a row. And she has not yet given a set to her rivals in the competition, the last of the year in the Grand Slam.
A meeting awaits her in the semi-finals with Onz Jabour, who became the first competitor from Africa to mark this stage of the tournament in New York. The Tunisian prevailed 6:4, 7:6 over Ayla Tomljanovic from Australia, who had eliminated Serena, thus ending the legend’s career earlier in the tournament.
The Minister of Happiness – that’s what Zhabur is called in her homeland, as she is much more than a sports star. Once again, millions are expected to gather in front of the TVs for the semi-final against Garcia, and the authorities are happy, although it hardly bodes well for the population’s ability to work…
The other semi-final pair will be determined by the matches Karolina Pliskova – Arina Sabalenka and Iga Šviontek – Jessica Pegula.
World No. 1 Schwiontek flashed mega-posters in the middle of Times Square on Tuesday night, something that hasn’t happened to a tennis player on the women’s tour in a long time.
Of the several appearances there of… Serena Williams, of course.
