Historic match! Where to watch Yastremska in the Australian Open semifinals: broadcast schedule
On Thursday, January 25, Ukraine's fifth ranked player Diana Yastremska (WTA No. 93) will play in the semifinals of the Australian Open tennis championships against China's Zheng Jingwen (WTA No. 15). The start of the match is scheduled for 12:00 and may be shifted depending on the duration of the previous game on this court.
Before Yastremska-Zheng, the second semifinal Corey Goff-Arina Sobolenko will take place at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.
This will be a historic meeting for Ukraine. No representative of our country has ever managed to make it to this stage of the Australian Open.
In addition, the 23-year-old from Odesa will become the second Ukrainian woman to play in the 1/2 finals of a major. Prior to that, Elina Svitolina played three times in the semifinals of Grand Slam tournaments (Wimbledon 2019 and 2023, US Open 2019).
The live broadcast is scheduled to air on Eurosport 2. It is available as part of Megogo's Maximum Media subscription.
Bookmakers do not see a clear favorite in this match. Bets on the Ukrainian's victory are accepted with odds of 2.75. Zheng's success is estimated at 1.48.
We would like to remind you that Yastremska and Zheng had not met before at the adult level.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, Diana defeated Czech Republic's Linda Nosková in the 1/4 finals (6:3, 6:4).
In addition, Ukrainian Lyudmyla Kichenok reached the semifinals of the Australian Open-2024 in women's doubles.
