The Miami Open final was won by Elena Rybakina over Jessica Pegula, marking her 13th victory in a row

Rybakina will face either Petra Kvitova, a two-time Wimbledon champion, or the unseeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea in the final.

In the semis, Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina defeated Jessica Pegula 6-4, 7-6(3). She became the fifth woman to win the Indian Wells championship by winning two wild sets and a few storm delays.

Rybakina, who was born in Moscow and currently plays for Khazakhstan, won the tiebreak and the second set despite neither player being able to establish their serve. Obviously, this is Rybakina’s thirteenth sequential triumph.

“I was playing much better when I was down,” Rybakina said on the court following her first victory over Pegula in three matches. The first set was challenging. The tie-break has two possible outcomes.

Rybakina will play either Russia’s Petra Kvitova, who beat Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, or Romania’s unseeded Sorana Cirstea. Kvitova has won Wimbledon twice.

In a match that had been postponed earlier on Thursday due to rain, Medvedev defeated American qualifier Christopher Eubanks 6-3, 7-5 to reach the tournament’s semifinals for the first time.

The main set was postponed due to rain, and the fourth-created Russian team won 3-2. Regardless, when play resumed 30 minutes later, he was a man on a mission. He won all of the resulting five matches in spite of not partaking in any of them.

Medvedev broke Eubanks for the fourth time in his third match, sending the American’s forehand wide. The ferocious Russian won 6-3, 7-5 for the first time in his career.

“I didn’t play my best before the storm delay.” “I was able to leave because the flood gave me more energy,” Medvedev stated. I continued to improve, with the exception of one bad serve game, which does occur.

Karen Khachanov, a fellow Russian who defeated Argentine Francisco Cerundolo 6-3, 6-2 to advance, will now face Medvedev.
