On this day, Rivakina defeated Ostapenko by using her strong serve with a high RBI of 190 km/h, which comes from her height of 184 cm, as her main weapon. She overpowered her by a large lead in serve ace (11-1) and her chance of scoring on her first successful serve (76%-55%). He also committed fewer errors in her (21-22) and brought her control of the game, including her dominance in the number of successful offenses in the winner (24-19).
The match was temporarily suspended due to rain during the first set, and resumed after the roof of the arena (Rod Laver Arena) was closed. Rivakina, who was about to break the flow, didn’t care about this unexpected situation and ended the game with a serve ace at the match point situation in the second set leading 5-4.
Rivakina tasted her first major championship when she won Wimbledon last year. He is officially of Kazakhstan nationality, but is from Moscow, Russia. He showed growth, such as succeeding in entering the world’s top 200 as a child, but the Russian Tennis Federation (RTF) stopped providing financial support to Rivakina, seeing that the chances of winning major tournaments were not high.
Livakina, who had to live on tour without a coach due to poor family circumstances, eventually accepted the offer of the Kazakhstan Tennis Federation, which promised enormous support in June 2018, when she turned 19, and acquired Kazakhstani nationality. Since then, he has participated as Kazakhstan’s representative in tour events and international competitions such as the Tokyo Olympics.
Rivakina will face the winner of the quarterfinals between Jessica Pegula (USA) and Victoria Azarenka (Belarus) for the right to advance to the final on the 26th.
