NEW YORK — Canada's Bianca Andreescu has reached the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open.

Andreescu toppled American Taylor Townsend in fourth-round play on Monday 6-1, 4-6, 6-2.

The 19-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., was playing under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium for the first time in her young career.

“It wasn’t easy. I don’t normally play people like this. But I made sure to work on my passing shots during practice. And I think it worked in the first and third set,” Andreescu said in an on-court interview after the match. “She picked it up in the second set, which was expected. But I kept my cool in the end.”

Andreescu reaches 1st Grand Slam final with plucky win over Bencic Bianca Andreescu never quits. The Canadian teenager booked a place in her first-ever Grand Slam final on Thursday, showcasing her never-say-die attitude in a gritty 7-6 (3), 7-5 win over Belinda Bencic in their US Open clash. Andreescu saved six break points in the first set before controlling the tiebreaker. She outdid herself in the second stanza, though, roaring back from a 5-2 deficit as her Swiss counterpart unraveled at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Canada ' s rising talent Bianca Andreescu defeated 17-year-old Katie Volynets 6-2 6-4 in the first round of the U . S . Open on Tuesday. The Canadian has been the subject of speculation over whether she could be the sport’ s latest star, despite having not yet made it past the second round of a Grand Slam.

Bianca Andreescu advanced to the third round of the U . S . Open with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Belgian veteran Kirsten Flipkens on Thursday. Andreescu , the No. 15 seed from Mississauga, Ont., won on her first match point when she completed a break of Flipkens with a powerful backhand.

The Canadian came out on fire and won the first set with ease, but the American found another gear in the second and was ahead 3-0 after holding serve.

Andreescu didn't help her cause with six double faults and 18 unforced errors up until that point. She made adjustments and battled back to tie it 3-3 before eventually dropping the set when she doubled faulted again on match point.

Andreescu broke Townsend to open the third set, and then went up 2-0 while holding serve despite being given a code violation warning after she hit the ball into the crowd on another double fault.

Townsend was broken again on her next serve as Andreescu stayed poised and took the match in one hour, 55 minutes.

Andreescu, who is coming off a win at the Rogers Cup in Toronto last month, is the 15th seed at the tournament while Townsend came into the Grand Slam ranked Number 116.

Andreescu will face Elise Mertens in the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows. Mertens earned a 6-1, 6-1 victory over American wild card Kristie Ahn in fourth-round play.
