Caroline Wozniacki is done at US Open in New York.
Canadian Bianca Andreescu made Caroline Wozniacki finish at the US Open in New York. Andreescu prevailed in the 3rd round 6-4, 6-4.
The third round became the final stop for Caroline Wozniacki at this year’s last grand slam tournament, the US Open. The 19th-seeded Danish fought against an enthusiastic Canadian 19-year-old comet Bianca Andreescu, who won in two sets with the 6-4, 6-4 score.
15th-seeded Andreescu had also won the two players so far showdown in early 2019, and she dominated most of the match at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
In a somewhat uncertain introduction to the match from both players, the first two games resulted in nerve breakthroughs. But from here, the fight found some rhythm.
Andreescu tried to break down Wozniacki with her heavy base game, but few players on the WTA Tour get more balls back than the Danish fighter.
It produced several great duels and close games, with both players serving until 3-3. In the seventh game, the 19-year-old Canadian then managed to break Wozniacki again.
And as in many of the other parties, the audience was spoiled by several great beats, with Andreescu just delivering a few more, which granted her the win.
That break was crucial as both players served in the rest of the set, which ended 6-4 in Canadian favor. Wozniacki played really well, but young Andreescu just proved that she is on her way, ready to get to the top of the world by storm.
After the first set, the Dane received treatment as she had problems with one ankle, but it did not seem to hamper her. The Canadian opponent just set an excellent example: despite several months of injury breaks this year, she has still won two WTA titles — including Indian Wells.
With two serve breakthroughs from the start of the second set, Andreescu led 3-0 before Wozniacki lit a small hope for a comeback by breaking back to 1-3. And the Dane gave more tests to her fighter heart. Soon after, she was down 0-40 in her own serve, but she fought her way back, reducing to 2-3.
It turned serious when she equalized with another break to 3-3, and then everything was open in the set again. Andreescu broke the lead by 4-3, but Wozniacki did not break. She immediately broke back to 4-4, and the nerves appeared to have settled with the Canadian.
But those nerves were completely gone at the party after. The Canadian bombed Wozniacki in low and could soon serve in the eighth-finals.
