Belinda Bencic takes on Bianca Andreescu in the semi-final of the US Open at Flushing Meadows on Thursday night.
The 22 year-old Swiss player Bencic beat Croatia’s Donna Vekic 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 in the last eight and, like Andreescu, has now reached her first Grand Slam semi-final.
The 19 year-old Canadian became the first teenager to reach this stage of the US Open since Caroline Wozniacki did so a decade ago. She did so by coming from behind to win 3-6 6-2 6-3 against Belgium’s Elise Mertens in the quarterfinals.
Andreescu has already won the prestigious Indian Wells event, followed by the Rogers Cup on home soil this year, so there’s no reason to believe that she’ll struggle with the occasion.
