Aryna Sabalenka beats Madison Keys in straight sets to progress to the Wimbledon Semi-Finals.

Udvardy, Gracheva, Blinkova, Alexandrova and Keys have now fallen at the hands of Sabalenka. She now heads into a tasty Semi-Final clash with Tunisian tennis player, Ons Jabeur.
The 2023 Australian Open champion is now just two wins away from winning Wimbledon for the first time. Her play this season has been highly impressive, leading many to believe that she might just go all the way this year.
