How Anisimova defeated Simona Halep
Amanda surprised for her composure during this delicate match to comment
“I don’t think it’ll sink in [her win]at least not for today. I mean it’s crazy I really can’t believe the result today and to get the opportunity to play against Simona.
Every time I had a lead and I was winning, I knew that I wasn’t actually winning. I mean I knew that she could come back at any moment so I wasn’t thinking about winning or not I was just thinking about playing each point and trying to get ahead and yeah as it was getting closer.
It was very tough, and you know nerves were kicking in a bit, but I was able to make a couple of winners and necessary points and just play the tennis that I wanted to play today.”
Anisimova vs. Barty
Amanda will face Ashleigh Barty in the semifinal to comment
“I’ve never played her before but I’m really looking forward to it so it should be a good match.
I watched her play a couple of times and I think she’s a very good player so I’m just really happy that actually, I get to play tomorrow and I have to wait a whole day because I get really eager to want to go on the court so I’m happy I get to play tomorrow.”
