In one of her best performances of the year, Sabalenka never went off the rails as she rocketed past the Czech 6-1, 7-6(4) to reach the semifinals in Flushing Meadows for the second consecutive year.
The 24-year-old has now reeled off five consecutive victories for the first time since she qualified for the semifinals last year at the Open.
“I just tried to make her work for it,” Sabalenka told the crowd. “She played really well—somehow I was able to handle this level and win this match.”
