The women’s semi-finals of the Olympic tournament are now known and there are some surprises.
Highest ranked player (6e), Elina Svitolina is the favorite to win the title but it will first be necessary to beat the formidable Czech Marketa Vondrousova (42e), slayer of Naomi Osaka.
In the other semi-final, the Swiss Belinda Bencic (12e), which should make Roger Federer proud, will be opposed to the powerful Kazakh Elena Rybakina (20e). A rather indecisive meeting between two players who will play big.
Note that none of these four players has won any Grand Slam title. The pressure will therefore necessarily be there.
