US Open 2021 Live – Leylah Fernandez enters Last 8: Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez continued her remarkable US Open run as she beat 2016 champion Angelique Kerber to advance to the quarter-finals.

On the eve of her 19th birthday, Fernandez backed up her win over Naomi Osaka with a 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 6-2 victory over Germany’s Kerber.

She battled back from a 4-2 deficit in the second set to force a tie-break and barely let up from then on.

Fernandez will face fifth seed Elina Svitolina for a semi-final spot.

Fernandez doubled over as her victory was confirmed, before she was given a standing ovation by a full crowd on Louis Armstrong Stadium.

“I looked at my box and I told them you know what, I’m all good – I’m ready to fight,” Fernandez said when asked about her emotions on losing the first set.

“I honestly don’t know where my composure comes from. I was just trying to take it point by point.”

US Open 2021 Live: Sabalenka enters Quarterfinals: No. 2 seed Sabalenka fired 22 winners and won 76% of points behind her first serve to defeat Mertens, 6-4, 6-1, in Louis Armstrong Stadium, and roar into the US Open quarterfinals for the first time.

She ended the set with eight double faults and 15 unforced errors but managed to convert a break point in the final game on Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Sabalenka cleaned up her act with just six unforced errors in the second half of the match, fending off the only break point opportunity against her as she put up 13 winners.

 

The Wimbledon semi-finalist, who won titles in Madrid and Abu Dhabi this year, conceded after the match that she “was struggling” with a few elements of her game and gave credit to Mertens.
