Where does the sperm go?

So prior to this app I honestly believed a woman could get pregnant anytime of her cycle 🤦🏽‍♀️ (way to go sex Ed class). But now that I know more about how everything works I just have one question, where does the sperm go.

So ovulation is when the egg is available to be fertilized and the cervix opens to invite in sperm in and the sperm swims through the vagina, cervix and Fallopian tubes. But if you have sex say two to three days before ovulation occurs where does the sperm go to wait on the egg if the cervix is closed?
