The" TGV Barty "a still spun at two hundred on time in this match that saw the local player take entrance the lead and the large face to the 51nd world, which had no more disputed half-finals in a major for four years ( At the US Open). Unplayable in the first round, the patroness of the circuit (and from the short time in this semifinal) did not really have problems either in the second, even if the unfortunate finalist of The US Open 2017 attempted a few accelerations of which it has the secret of Cut Barty in its momentum. A mission currently impossible and after the Australian, e Imperial NCORE, Breaked at 3-2 (Unique Break of this Second Channel), Keys never revised his executioner, to whom a single match bullet was enough to add a ninth success already (she had won Adelaide During his only tournament played before Melbourne) at his counter of 2022. The "bulldozer" has still not known from Hic this year. And it's probably gone to last. Do not displease Danielle Collins or Iga Swiatek. One of the two will have the heavy task of introducing Barty in the final.
