Miami Open: Rybakina Sprints Into Semi-Finals, Sets Up Meet

Elena Rybakina made it to the semi-finals at the Miami Open with her 12th consecutive win on the WTA tour as she beat Martina Trevisan.

The Wimbledon champion beat her opponent 6-3 6-0 to keep her "Sunshine Double" hope alive.

“I’m very happy to go through,” said Rybakina, who completed a bagel over her opponent to win in 68 minutes.

“I managed to change my game in the second set. 

"I was not rushing so much, I was not playing that fast maybe.

“I’m not really happy with my first serve percentage but overall it was a good match and hopefully I can continue like this."

Her next match for a place in the final is against Jessica Pegula who beat No. 26 Anastasia Potapova 4-6 6-3 7-6(2) in the Miami Open quarterfinals.

Pegula holds a 2-0 head-to-head record against Rybakina with their last meeting coming during her title run in Guadalajara in October. 

"I don't mind playing her, at least in the past," Pegula said. 

"Obviously, she's picked up her level since then, so it'll be a tough test, especially after this match, just physically see how I feel. 

"Hopefully I can recover in time. At least I have another day.

"I think she and Sabalenka are the ones to beat right now so it's going to be a great test and a deserved semi for a tournament like this."
