The Wimbledon Quarterfinals feature a thrilling match between world number two Aryna Sabalenka and one of the two remaining North American competitors, Madison Keys. This will be the third chapter of a one-sided series.
Only Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka can compete with Iga for the top spot in the WTA rankings. However, Sabalenka has already learned that a pair of trophies would not suffice, but a new crown at Wimbledon will put her one step closer to her objective.
This season, the American tennis player has won two titles, the most recent of which was at Eastbourne. Madison Keys began her record of nine consecutive victories in this event, also on grass, eight of them in straight sets with the exception of her last match against Mirra Andreva, which took three sets.
