Nothing stops him. Caroline Garcia qualified for the semi-finals of the WTA 1000 Cincinnati, Ohio tournament by defeating Jessica Pegula (6-1, 7-5), Friday, August 19. A sizeable performance for the Frenchwoman against the 8th player in the world.

“I played a very good game, I was very aggressive from start to finish”, savored the No. 35 in the WTA rankings at a press conference, after her victory in 1h13 against the American. Garcia, already titled twice this year, will face Aryna Sabalenka, 7th in the world, in the semifinals on Saturday. The other meeting will oppose Madison Keys to Petra Kvitova.

A final victory would give her a third WTA 1000, after the two successes during her two-successful Asian tour in 2017. Caroline Garcia had not reached the last four of a tournament at this level for four years. The Habs remain in line with an idyllic month of July, which saw him beat Iga Swiatek and win a title in Warsaw. Something to smile about, ten days before a US Open.
