“Really proud of the fight I showed today,” Gauff said in her post-match interview. “Marta is a tough opponent. Every time we play, it is a tough match, and yeah, I really fought and left it all out on the court today.”

Gauff is now set to face off against defending champion Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus, who defeated Czech Republic’s Barbora KrejĨíková 6-2 6-3.

The seminal will be a rematch of the U.S. Open Final, where Gauff defeated Sabalenka to win her first major title.

"I love it. I love it," Sabalenka said of her upcoming match with Gauff. "After U.S. Open, I really wanted that revenge, and, I mean, that's a great match."
