Team GB’s women will have to wait until Friday afternoon to continue their bid for gold, with their match against reigning Olympic champions Sweden beginning at 12.05pm GMT.
Speaking after her side’s win over the ROC, Muirhead told BBC Sport: “We had to win that game today and that’s what we went out there to do.
“We fought out hearts out, nothing was in our control apart from our own game and that’s what we did.
“I was in this position in 2018 as well in the semi-final and I do want to do one better. I’m very proud of this team, we’ve played very well all week.
“As much as we’ve lost a few games all of us know those losses have not been through a lot of bad play, it’s been inches here and there - but that’s curling.”
Switzerland will face Japan in the other women’s semi-final.
