A dud compared to yesterday's matches, but a win is a win.
A great three weeks or so for Barbora, winning her first title and now reaching a SF.
Coco nine match winning streak ends, on the way to Lindsay Nostradamus prediction at USO. After almost winning the first set, completely collapsed in the second. Did well to try to come back in the last few games though.

Gif for the racket smash please @mattypark ?

The first set felt like it was going to Gauff.

Good for Krejcikova, what a season!

Holy crap Gauff is so annoying to watch. She has game but literally every point she won there was a c'mon towards the end of the match for the last 3-4 games. Every single point! So unlikeable.

I'm loving Barbora !!! She has amazing game and hope she goes all the way to the title

After losing 15 points in a row it looked like Coco was catching second wind but Bára managed to serve it out eventually

Surprised that Coco lost the plot midway through the match when leading first set (few set points wasted). Probably she felt the pressure to win quickly and her inexperience showed thereafter. But great effort to battle out for a possible comeback towards end of 2nd set.

Krejcikova played great, especially coming back in the first set taking to tiebreak. Congratulations for reaching her first slam semi! Who would've thought she'd be the last Czech standing. Anyhow she's a dark horse for sure. Her confidence is improving for sure (bar the nerves to close out match)

Coco had her chances in the first set, well done by Bara to save all those SPs!

Quite the nervy affair - understandable, as both are in their first slam QF.

What a run by Bara, and what a set of months for her. Impressive rise in the rankings from Krejcikova - whatever she did during the pandemic to improve on herself really worked!

Nervy tense affair in the 1st. Gauff lost the plot after wasting BPs in the 2nd, but a cute attempt to try to comeback.

I find Krejcikova really pleasant to watch, can do anything on the court! She will have some chance against Swiatek

When they were 3 games in, even 8 games in, I thought Gauff would win easy.
But she feels a shitload of pressure and caved in. Its all about handling pressure for everyone left

That was very tight at the end - was it 5 match points that Gauff saved?

This draw obviously is not the highest quality tennis and lacking big names, but it's still entertaining in its own way.

Coco lost the plot after losing the tiebreak that should've been hers.
Barbs did her best to choke this away, but did really well to keep it together.

Zidansek/Krejcikova final is still on. 🙊
