Angelique Kerber snaps Caroline Garcia’s winning streak to move into Mallorca semi-finals
Top seed Angelique Kerber has booked her spot in the Mallorca Open semi-finals after snapping Caroline Garcia’s winning streak.
Garcia headed into their match on the back of seven straight wins, but found Kerber far too good for her.
“It’s really nice to be in the semis here, it’s a great tournament,” Kerber said, after her 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) win.
“I played really good; it’s the first tournament on grass, so I’m looking forward to playing the semis right now.”
Kerber will now face Belinda Bencic in the last four after she saw off Amanda Anisimova, and she’s expecting a real test.
“Against Belinda, we’ve had so many tough matches in the last few years, and months,” Kerber added.
“She plays really good tennis, especially in the last few weeks, so I know it will be a tough match, but I think also a good match on a really high level.”
