Aryna Sabalenka speaks out in dominant semifinal win

Once everyone could hear, Aryna Sabalenka delivered a message that was loud and clear at the BNP Paribas Open on Friday.

In a women’s semifinal match delayed by half an hour by audio system glitches on Stadium 1 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, Sabalenka continued the strong play that earned her an Australian Open title two months ago. With strong serves and powerful ground strokes, Sabalenka advanced to her first BNP Paribas Open singles final with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Maria Sakkari.

Sabalenka will meet No. 10 seed Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan, who beat top-seed and defending champion Iga Swiatek of Poland 6-2, 6-2 in the other semifinal. The women’s final begins at 1 p.m., Sunday.
