There will be a clash between Elina Svitolina and Aryna Sabalenka in the semi-final of the Strasbourg tournament! The Belarusian, seeded No. 4, joined the Ukrainian (No. 2) by beating Katerina Siniakova over two days. Led 6-2, 1-2 Thursday night when the match was interrupted due to the rain, the Belarusian ended up winning 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 in 2:21. Although she had completely missed the first set, she increased her level of play in the second, leading quickly 4-2. Siniakova managed to break down (3-4), but she again lost her serve in the wake (3-5), and offered the set to her opponent. It was the Czech who started the decisive set the best, leading 3-1, but then completely lost her means, losing five games in a row, and therefore the match! Sabalenka will therefore face Svitolina in the afternoon, while the first semi-final will pit Nao Hibino against Elena Rybakina.
