Czech tennis player Karolína Muchová has failed to reach the final of the Australian Open. The 24-year-old Czech lost to Jennifer Brady of the USA 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 in her maiden Grand Slam semi-finals on Thursday.
Muchová, ranked 25th in the world, caused a sensation when she beat world number one Ashleigh Barty of Australia in the quarter-finals.
In the women’s doubles, Czech duo Barbora Krejčíková and Kateřina Siniaková – two-time Grand Slam winners together – will face Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka for the Australian Open title.
