Sabalenka advances to Wimbledon semifinals
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Aryna Sabalenka has won more matches this year than anyone else in women’s tennis, and now she’s even winning at Grand Slams.
Playing in her first major quarterfinal, the No. 2-seeded Sabalenka used her attacking style to beat No. 21 Ons Jabeur 6-4, 6-3 at Wimbledon. Sabalenka was aggressive with her strokes and court position but still had more winners than unforced errors.
Until this year, Sabalenka had never advanced beyond the second round at Wimbledon. The Belarusian’s opponent in the semifinals Thursday will be No. 8 Karolina Pliskova, who beat unseeded Viktorija Golubic 6-2, 6-2.
