It’s Bianca Andreescu’s world and we’re all just living in it. The Canadian blasts her way past Mertens 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal.
Bianca Andreescu will play Elise Mertens in the US Open quarterfinals on Wednesday. Andreescu and Mertens have never met previously, but both have been in impressive form of late.
Bet on her for the next Game, here are the odds:
Andreescu held off a strong challenge from American qualifier Taylor Townsend in the last 16, progressing with a 6-1 4-6 6-2 victory.
It was an 11th consecutive win for the 19 year-old Canadian and extended her record for the year to a hugely impressive 42-4. As a result, she’s now in the half of the draw that is guaranteed to feature a first-time major finalist. There seems little reason why it shouldn’t be her.
Mertens has been in superb form in reaching the quarterfinals, having lost no more than three games in each of the eight sets she’s played in the tournament to date. In the 4th round, the number 25 seed comprehensively saw off American wildcard Kristie Ahn, 6-1 6-1.
