The Australian Open field continues to shrink as only four women will remain after Tuesday’s play. One semifinal matchup has already been determined — Victoria Azarenka knocked off the highest seed left in the quarterfinals, No. 3 Jessica Pegula, and Elena Rybakina will face Azarenka on Wednesday.

Two more quarterfinal games have yet to be played on Tuesday to determine the second semifinal matchup. With Pegula out, no Americans remain in the women’s draw of the Grand Slam tournament. Kazakhstan’s Rybakina is currently the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, with her odds set at +125.

The semifinals will take place at the Rod Laver arena on Wednesday, January 25. Both matches will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET.
