Barely 24 hours have passed since Swiatek wrapped up a decidedly jittery quarter-final win over Jessica Pegula in which the top seed had her serve broken six times, yet clinched victory with her first match point. It rather sums up the 21-year-old’s tournament so far – far from convincing, but impossible to argue with the results.
Sabalenka’s serve has been such a hindrance this season, but she’s made tweaks to it and they’re paying off. The 24-year-old Belarusian didn’t face a single break point against Karolina Pliskova yesterday, and used her powerful groundstrokes to wallop her opponent off the court.
Sheer aggression may be less effective against Swiatek, who’s thrashed her three times this season, but Sabalenka has played as well as anyone at the US Open, and she’s had more time to recover for this clash. Here’s how to watch a Swiatek vs Sabalenka live stream at US Open 2022 from wherever you are in the world.
