Canada’s Leylah Fernandez advances to French Open quarter-finals for first time

India Blooms News Service | @notintownlive | 30 May 2022, 11:06 pm

Canada’s Leylah Fernandez advanced to her first French Open quarter-finals win on Sunday at Roland Garros by taking a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 win over the United States’ Amanda Anisimova in just under two hours.

After beating Aliaksandra Sasnovich, of Belarus, 7-6 (10), 7-5, 19-year-old, Fernandez from Montreal will take on Italy’s Martina Trevisan.

Fernandez, who had never won more than two consecutive main-draw matches on clay until this trip to Paris becomes the youngest player to win a WTA title in 2022 and is seeded 17th at the French Open.

Last year at the U.S. Open, Fernandez made a breakthrough by making it all the way to the final before losing to Emma Raducanu in a matchup between a pair of unseeded teenagers.
