Leylah Fernández breaks all records at the US Open

The young Canadian Leylah Fernández (73rd), just turned 19, confirmed this Thursday that records are to be broken, because once again thrilled Arthur Ashe, where defeated Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka (2nd) 7-6 (3), 4-6 and 6-4 in two hours and 21 minutes of play, and will play the end of the US Open.

Thanks to her celebration before the second best seed of the tournament, the Montreal-born left-hander, daughter of an Ecuadorian father and Filipino mother, who debuted her record this season in Monterrey, became the Youngest player to enter the deciding match at a Grand Slam since 2004, when the Russian María Sharapova achieved it with 17 years and 75 days at Wimbledon, a competition in which she finally established herself by defeating the historic American Serena Williams in straight sets.

In addition, the 2019 Junior Roland Garros champion beat Sabalenka (2nd), the Japanese Naomi Osaka (3rd) and the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina (5th) during the competition and became the most rookie to beat three members of the Top 5 in the same edition of the North American Major since 1999, when the youngest of the Williams sisters achieved it at Flushing Meadows, a complex in which she beat Martina Hingis (1st), Lindsay Davenport (2nd) and Monica Seles (3rd), and lifted the trophy.
