Garcia, who was 28 years old and competing in her first Grand Slam semifinal, was never able to find a way to either release the pressure or set up her aggressive style. After winning at Wimbledon, Jabeur, now 28 years old, would compete in the final of another major tournament the following day. It will be against either the number one player in the world, Poland’s Iga Swiatek, or Belarus’s Aryna Sabalenka (6th). Garcia, who was playing in her maiden semi-final of a Grand Slam tournament at the age of 28, will not have the opportunity to become the first Frenchwoman to reach the final at Flushing Meadows since Mary Pierce in 2005. Pierce was the last player from France to reach the final at Flushing Meadows. Garcia has faced Jabeur twice on the professional circuit, but they have yet to settle their score with a victory for Garcia.
She was eliminated from the 2019 US Open in the first round, and she was eliminated from the 2020 Australian Open in the second round. The same thing was observed in the junior circuit, when the Frenchwoman was unsuccessful in every match she played, losing four times between 2010 and 2011. After observing a moment of silence in memory of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away earlier in the day, the meeting started at 7:17 p.m. local time on Thursday (1:07 a.m. in France).
