Ranked No. 1 Sibiong Tech, eliminated in the 4th round of the Australian Open… a blow to Kazakh Rivakina
Iga Sibiong Tech (Poland), the world’s No. 1 in the women’s professional tennis (WTA) singles, was eliminated in the round of 16 at the Australian Open (total prize money of 76.5 million dollars), the first major tournament of the season.
Sibiong Tech lost 0-2 (4-6 4-6) to Kazakhstan’s Elena Rivakina (25th) in the 4th round of the women’s singles on the 7th day of her tournament held in Melbourne, Australia on the 22nd. Sibiong Tech has won the French Open in 2020 and 2022 and the US Open last year, but she has yet to win the Australian Open or Wimbledon. The Australian Open reached the quarterfinals last year and Wimbledon reached the round of 16 in 2021, her best results. 토토사이트
After giving the first set 4-6, Sibiong Tech took a 3-0 lead in the second set, but she gave up three games in a row and allowed the game score to tie. She then gave her own serve game to Rivakina, which she faced at 4-4, getting her fatal blow.
Rivakina, who defeated her Sibyong Tech on this day, defeated Ons Jaber (Tunisia) in the women’s singles final at Wimbledon last year to win the first major championship in Kazakhstan tennis history. Prior to Rivakina, no Kazakhstani player, either male or female, had finished higher than the semifinals in a major tournament.
Rivakina will play the quarterfinals against Coco Goff (7th place, USA) and Yelena Ostapenko (17th place, Latvia), the winner of the match.
