Today, the Olomouc native is fighting for her premiere participation in the grand slam final. Her opponent is American tennis player Jennifer Brady. Watch the match in a detailed online report on Sport.cz from 5:30 online.
Five opponents, including Karolína Plíšková and Ashleigh Barty in the quarterfinals, were eliminated by Karolína Muchová on her way to her premiere grand slam semifinal. She lost the only set so far in the quarterfinals with the home star.
Today’s opponent and 24th player Jennifer Brady are in the same situation. The 25-year-old American gradually sent the Spaniard Bolsova, the American Brengle, the Slovenian Juvanová, the Croatian Vekičová and the compatriot Pegula in the quarterfinals. She has just lost her only hundred in the tournament.
Muchová met Bradyová on the circuit in only one case, in the eighth finals of the tournament in Prague two years ago, where the Olomouc native won the clay court in Stromovka after a huge 7: 6 battle in the third set.
