WWW Strasbourg DREAM Semi Final: (2) Aryna SABALENKA vs (6) Dayana YASTREMSKA

Now this really is a DREAM match which has got lost in all the RG draw excitement. Both have struggled for form these past couple of months, but they have been playing some great stuff this week, brushing their opponents aside with ball bashing at it's best. First WTA meeting between them, Dayana won a 100k match in 3 sets 2 years ago.

Who wins?

This should be fun, hope to see some good crunchy power tennis. Hope the young 'un won't wilt before the more experienced player.

Hoping Dayana can pull this out. Pretty worried about RG so a run to the finals here would be nice.

C'mon y'all!

Dayana has been made the slight favourite here.

For this level of competition, it is as dreamy as it gets. I mean, look at Nurnberg SFs.

I've been waiting for any combo of a Sabalenka-Yastremska-Ostapenko main tour match for over a year now, so I am genuinely pumped for this.

Yastremska will win the first set, something like 6-4. And sabalenka will retire shortly thereafter to avoid a three set battle ahead of Paris

Yastremska 6-4, 2-0 Ret.

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.

They've both been playing really well this tournament. I'd argue Sabalenka's quality of opponent has been a lot higher so I might give her an edge as she's come through more of a test and just played a good BBB.

Yastremska FTW. She beat Sabalenka in their only previous match up. However, it was ITF and it went to three. Yastremska has always seemed the better, more stable player generally speaking. Sabalenka's game can be picked apart by someone like Yastremska.
