Sofia Kenin defeated Ashleigh Barty, the No. 1 WTA (7-6 (6), 7-5) and the main favorite to win the big trophy, in the first semi-final of the Australian Open. Now she’ll play the final match with Garbine Muguruza from Spain.
Kyrgios, a tennis player eliminated by Nadal, said that Barty is the main favorite in winning the women’s tournament.
“It is great to have an Australian athlete who is doing so well. As he plays, I think he is the main favorite to win this Grand Slam. I want her to win.
Since I know it, everyone has had very high expectations for it. He destroyed everything in June, and then he paused to order his thoughts. After he returns and beats everyone, he destroys them all. It will have very good benefits, just don’t put too much pressure on it, “Kyrgios said about Ashleigh Barty, according to ESPN.
Kenin has played fantastic, under a scorching sun and is by far the highest performance in a Grand Slam for her! Previously, the American had never gone beyond the best of a Grand Slam tournament.
Now, Kenin will face Gabrine Muguruza wich defeated Simona Halep (no. 2 WTA) with the score 6-7 (8), 5-7.
