Aryna Sabalenka powered into a second Wimbledon semi-final on Wednesday with a straight-sets win over Madison Keys of the United States. World No. 2 Sabalenka from Belarus, a semi-finalist in 2021, came through 6-2, 6-4 and will face Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur for a place in Saturday’s final. 


Along with all Russian and Belarusian players, Sabalenka was banned from the 2022 tournament following the invasion of Ukraine. Belarus is a key ally of Moscow. “It was an amazing battle and I’m so happy to be back in the semi-final. I just hope to do better than last time,” said Sabalenka. 



She was defeated in three sets by Karolina Pliskova in the last four in 2021. “Madison is a great player. I’m super happy that I came back when I was 2-4 down, 0-40 in the second set,” she said.
