Halep powers into Australian Open semis

29 January 2020 15:05

MELBOURNE. KAZINFORM Simona Halep destroyed Estonia's Anett Kontaveit 6-1, 6-1 and reached the Australian Open semifinals here on Wednesday.

Halep wasted no time asserting her authority over the 28th seed Kontaveit without dropping a set. It only took 53 minutes for the Romanian to seal a place in the Australian Open semifinals for the second time in three years, Xinhua reports.

The 28-year-old now could focus on her quest for a third major title besides her 2018 French Open crown and last year's Wimbledon triumph.
