Caroline Garcia withdraws Bianca Andreescu from the US Open –

Tennis News: French tennis player Caroline Garcia has maintained a hot summer after booking a spot in the fourth round of the 2022 US Open.

The 17th seed managed to snatch an impressive 6-3, 6-2 victory over 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu in the third round.

The French tennis player has now won 12 consecutive matches after battling for 1 hour 26 minutes against Canadian tennis player Andreescu. Before arriving in Flushing Meadows, New York, he became the first qualifier to win a WTA 1000 level tournament in Cincinnati.

For the fifth time in her career, the 17th seed has reached the third round of the US Open, but she has never gone further than that. That changed at Louis Armstrong Stadium against the 2019 season champions.

In her tenth Grand Slam appearance in New York, the 28-year-old advanced to the fourth round for the first time in her career.

Meanwhile, the win in Cincinnati was Garcia’s tenth career title, joining Amélie Mauresom, Mary Pierce and Julie Halard Decugis as Frenchwomen since 1980 to win double-digit titles.

Three of the ten titles won by the French national during the summer of this year and won on three different grounds. Before winning the Cincinnati hard-court tournament, he won the Bad Homburg grass-court tournament in June and the Warsaw clay-court tournament in July.

Against Andreescu, the French tennis player fired 31 winning shots. Maintaining an aggressive game throughout the match, he committed a relatively low number of unforced errors, namely 20. While the Canadian tennis player could only fire 11 winners.

Additionally, the 12th seed converted five of his ten break point chances.

Andreescu cornered Garcia in close games towards the end and the Canadian showed further tenacity by getting two match point chances before closing the gap to 2-5. But the 12th seed eventually converted a third match point chance in the next game.

If Garcia wants to go further at the US Open, then he will have to eliminate a player he has never beaten. She will meet 29th seed Alison Riske who topped their head-to-head 3-0.

Host tennis player, Riske, needed 2 hours 21 minutes to knock out Chinese tennis player, Wang Xiyu with 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.
