America’s tennis star Caroline Dolehide produced a stunning comeback to book her place in the semifinal of the Guadalajara Open.
The 25-year-old faced Italy’s Martina Trevisan in the last-eight clash and was outclassed in the first set. She lost it with a score of 3-6.
However, Dolehide held her nerve in what proved to be a tough battle for both players. She ended up winning it on a super tiebreak with a score of 11-9.
In the third, the Illinois-born was back to her very best as she ended up securing her spot in the next round with a thumping win with a score of 6-3.
The victory was a special one for Dolehide as it will be her first appearance in the semifinal of a WTA event in more than a year and she will face fellow American and 2020 Australian Open winner Sofia Kenin.
Dolehide will be hoping to lift the title, especially after having a disappointing year at the highest level.
The world number 47 played in all four Grand Slams in 2023 but failed to qualify for the second round or beyond in any of the mega-events.
In the Australian and French Open, Dolehide failed to qualify for the main draw whereas in Wimbledon and US Open, she was knocked out in the first round.
