Elina Svitolina will face Leylah Fernandez in the US Open quarter-finals. 

Fernandez has had a remarkable run in New York, but Svitolina’s experience should eventually see her into the last four with value on a straight sets victory.

Svitolina hasn’t lost a set in her four matches so far, and calmly disposed of Simona Halep 6-3 6-3 in the fourth round. The fifth-seeded Ukrainian earlier eliminated Rebecca Marino 6-2 6-3, Rebeka Masarova  6-2 7-5 and Daria Kasatkina 6-4 6-2.

She’s on a nine-match winning run having taken the title in Chicago, and is also still on a high after her Olympic bronze medal in Tokyo for the Ukraine.

It’s been an extraordinary tournament for Fernandez, who – having just turned 19 years old – has dumped out multiple major winners Naomi Osaka 5-7 7-6(2) 6-4 and Angelique Kerber 4-6 7-6(5) 6-2 on her way to the last eight.

Coming from a set and break down in both those matches was something few expected, but Fernandez’s all-court game – and mental resolve – is proving difficult to overcome. The Canadian teenager opened her journey at Flushing Meadows with a 7-6(3) 6-2 victory over Ana Konjuh before disposing of Kaia Kanepi 7-5 7-5.

Having already won a WTA title in Monterrey this year, her confidence has gone up even further with each round in New York.

Verdict

Is this a bridge too far for Fernandez? Svitolina has been excellent in the tournament so far, and she should have enough nous to beat the young Canadian prodigy in straight sets.
