0

The
18-year-old
American
fan
favourite
won
7-5
7-5
on
Sunday,
sealing
her
place
in
the
last
eight.

Gauff’s
victory
makes
her
the
youngest
player
to
have
reached
the
quarters
at
Flushing
Meadows
since
Melanie
Oudin
in
2009.

Oudin,
another
American,
was
17
at
the
time,
and
lost
her
last-eight
tie
to
eventual
runner-up
Caroline
Wozniacki.

Caroline
Garcia
is
next
up
for
Gauff,
who
will
face
either
Ons
Jabeur
or
Ajla
Tomljanovic
should
she
overcome
the
US
Open
quarter-final
debutant.

Australia’s
Tomljanovic
followed
up
her
defeat
of
Serena
Williams
with
a
7-6
(10-8)
6-1
win
over
Liudmila
Samsonova,
snapping
the
Russian’s
13-match
winning
streak
and
reaching
her
second
career
grand
slam
quarter-final
in
the
process.

World
number
five
Jabeur,
meanwhile,
made
history
by
becoming
the
first
North
African
woman
to
make
the
US
Open
quarter-finals
in
the
Open
Era.

She
is
the
third
woman
from
the
African
continent
to
do
so,
with
South
Africans
Maryna
Godwin
(1968)
and
Amanda
Coetzer
(1994,
1996
and
1998)
having
previously
achieved
the
feat.
Jabeur
defeated
Veronika
Kudermetova
7-6
(7-1)
6-4.
