Australian Open: Barty and serene Krejcikova
© Provided by Sports.fr Tennis - Australian Open (F): Barty and Krejcikova in the quarterfinals, and not Badosa Sakkari Ashleigh Barty did not disappoint her public. World No. 1, took a step closer to a first Grand Slam title at home. For this, the native of Ipswich took the best two-round Amanda Anisimova. From the first game, the Australian has pressured the US but the latter ruled out a break point before missing an opportunity to take his opponent's service.
The final of the Sydney tournament will oppose two of the favorites Barbora Krejcikova and Paula Badosa. Series head number 5, the Spanish ranked at the Ninth World Range corrected (6-2, 6-2) Russian Daria Kasatkina in the second semifinal. Krejcikova can not say as much. The Czech, number 3 series head, was very scared facing another head of Anett Kontaveit series before getting out, almost miraculously. Before going out victorious in the last set of an endless decisive game won on the score also completely crazy from 14 to 12 , the number 4 in the rankings ended up several times at the edge of the precipice. The laureate of the last Roland-Garros had to rule out seven game bullets (three before this endless Tie-Break). She finally had the last word (6-0, 4-6, 7-6) after 2:32 game and his sixth match ball. Kontaveit, who had started the meeting in a thunderous way (a 6-0 administered entrance to his opponent), and then had seven bullets to conclude, can feed huge regrets.
