The No. 5-seeded Elina Svitolina beat the British player Johanna Konta (16 seed) and, for the first time in her career, advanced to the semifinals in the US Open in Flushing, New York, Ukrinform reported.
After winning her quarterfinals match, Svitolina moved up to third place in the WTA rankings tying her previous personal highest rank.
Svitolina’s previous best result at the US Open was in 2017 when she reached the 1/8 finals. The last time she was ranked third in the WTA rankings was after reaching the quarterfinals at the Australian Open in 2018.
Svitolina will play Serena Williams in the semifinal match. Williams defeated 18th-seeded Wang Qiang to claim her 100th singles win at the US Open.
