Andreescu sees off Mertens in US Open last 8

Andreescu sees off Mertens in US Open last 8

But Andreescu, who was the first Canadian man or woman to play a US Open quarter-final since Patricia Hy-Boulais in 1992, showed the steely composure and taste for the fight that has led her to 12 straight three-set wins, finding her range with the forehand and mixing in drop shots.

The smart money is on that number rising further after the 33-year-old Spaniard Nadal reached the U.S. Open semi-finals in NY on Wednesday.

"I think there is going to be a lot of open road for our players in the next five years or so when these incredible legends eventually leave the game". I think that's why we tennis players play. She built on the run in New Zealand and qualify for the Australian Open, where she lost in the second round.

Say it with us: Bianca Andreescu is a Grand Slam semi-finalist. After all, she had been flawless (11-0) in third sets since Indian Wells and 13-3 for the year.

"The work and staying in the moment is more important right now". In the victory, Bencic won 84 percent of her first serve points and 52 percent of her second serve points. As a wild card at Indian Wells - her first premier tournament - she stunned the field, fans and the media alike with a dominant performance, which included wins over Garbine Muguruza, Elina Svitolina and Angelique Kerber, to take home the title. Now she can join him as a major champion. If Andreescu can win two more matches this week, she will be very much part of the present, as well as the future. She played in low-tier tournaments to rebuild her game, drudgery that has carried her to her first Grand Slam event semifinal.

Playing in her first-ever US Open main draw and only her fourth Grand Slam main draw ever, the No. 15-ranked Canadian came back from a set down to overcome Elise Mertens of Belgium, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3.

IHS Markit said the PMIs for July and August suggest the economy is on track for a 0.1% drop in output during the third quarter. The GDP growth rate for the first three months of the current fiscal was at 5 per cent, which is the lowest in 26 quarters.


Courier said that American tennis fans had still been spoiled by 23-times Grand Slam singles champion Serena Williams, her seven-times slam champion sister Venus and 2017 U.S. Open victor Sloane Stephens.

The 19-year-old becomes the youngest semifinalist at Flushing Meadows since Caroline Wozniacki was also 19 when she was the runner-up in 2009.

Williams has won 23 of those, including six at the U.S. Open.

"She has made a mark". That has been the defining feature of her year: victories over players who are much higher than her in the WTA rankings. "The one I can most compare her game to would probably be Kim back in the day, Clijsters, because she moves well and she can stretch out and get to some balls and also play the aggressive and using the angles". She then shook her fists as she turned to look at her family and friends in her player box.

"I'm trying to work on my staying emotionally calm in the matches, but I have no trouble focusing after being angry a little bit", she said. I think a price upwards of [1.80] might be more of interest. But has lived and first learned tennis in the European country. They started working together in 2018, when she was still toiling on the ITF circuit, and even he didn't expect her to make it to the top so soon. It was there she first picked up a tennis racket, but she didn't get serious about the game until the family returned to the Toronto area a few years later.
