The semi-final should be confirmed for Friday’s 2023 Canadian Open (Omnium Banque Nationale) as rain delays threaten the tournament. But the schedule has already been set. And our preview takes you through the main talking points of the Canadian Open.
Periodic rain delays caused two matches to be canceled especially for today, with four players set to play two matches on Friday.
Sabalenka/Samsonova and Bencic-Kvitova coming to a conclusion
Liudmila Samsonova and Belinda Bencic facing Petra Kvitova in second court and Aryna Sabalenka begins.
Two relationships that fell out of the rain were delayed and were the only two that didn’t end in one night, which apparently didn’t play out at all in the beginning.
Instead, they will start and then will play their final semi-finals at the main center court (IGA Stadium).
Swiatek-Collins and Pegula-Gauff make headlines.
in the meantime The two headlines related to each other of the quarterfinals. Meanwhile, Jessica Pegula and Coco Goff, who will compete in the women’s doubles quarter-finals thereafter, will face each other on the field.
Certainly good friends on and off the court due to their partnership. It will be the third meeting between the pair and the second of the year.
Their first 2023 saw Gauff take on Eastbourne’s quarter-finals on a week when Madison Keys were crowned. Their only other meeting was Pegula’s win in Dubai on a hard court 6-. 4, 6-4
It was a new impetus this season though for Gauff, who hired former Andre Agassi coach Brad Gilbert and looked rejuvenated and beat Washington last week. But similar to Maria Zachari, although there was no loss in the first round. But she still hasn’t added a name that comes with this consistency. Will she do it this week or will she see Goff again?
From consistency to the top players on tour and players struggling to match together, Iga Swiatek and Danielle Collins followed.
Swiatek maneuvered Karolina Muchova avoiding the rain to bounce back and pass, while Collins tackled Leylah Fernandez.
Queen of coming, as the official Twitter account dubbed Collins, she qualified to the latter after halting starting time on the tour since reaching the Australian Open final.
Like Collins, she defeated Swiatek en route to a 2-1 lead over the Pole in Head to Head. It’s a play with an American character leaving absolutely everything on the field.
Joining the well-documented ‘shut your mouth’ with Maria Sakkari in a game that promises so much due to their on-court personalities. She won’t get that with Swiatek.
Swiatek is very organized and even takes his laptop to court to study tactics between matches. But as seen from the shaky draw with Mukova she can be weak And with Collins’ consistent competitive form and showing why she’s a Grand Slam finalist. It could prove to be the toughest test of the number one in the world to date.
Finally, following the previously mentioned second match in a day for two of the four, it will be Elena Rybakina battling her shoulders with Sloane Stephens facing Daria Kasatkina.
Rybakina still wins 6-3, 6-3, but there are doubts about World Number Four and Kasatkina will look at the advantage.
This was proof that she was tied with Jennifer Brady, two points away from the defeat. Americans are quality operators. but one who hasn’t toured for more than two years. The Kazakh player has overcome fragility and illness that have prevented her from playing at her best.
Maybe it’s just fatigue with Stephens. But the proof will be in the pudding with a rocky Kasatkina. Anna Blinkova, Elise Mertens and Marie Bouzkova fall to No. 14 in the world and she has a 2-1 head to head over Rybakina despite being different years since 2020 and both of them. It’s been a very different player since then. But some questions will be answered.
