US Open: Wozniacki likens Andreescu to Clijsters

Canadian Andreescu beats Wozniacki at Open

"Tennis is a game where you win and lose points constantly".

"It means a lot, because this is my best result in a Grand Slam".

Denis Shapovalov, who followed Andreescu onto Court No. 5 and inherited a strong contingent of Canadian supporters, followed her lead and also advanced to the third round with a 6-4, 7-6 (2), 6-2 victory over Henri Laaksonen of Switzerland.

Later Saturday, Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., played No. 13 seed Gael Monfils of France.

The Mississauga native first gained recognition on January at the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand, in what many referred to a dream run that saw her taking the runner up spot in the final, she has since gone on to win the Oracle Challenger Series, Indian Wells, and most recently, the Rogers Cup.

It'll be a tough matchup between Andreescu, who likes to mix up her shot selection and change the pace, and the pure serve-and-volleyer Townsend, who grew up idolizing the game of Hall of Famer Martina Navratilova.

Andreescu's US Open has been more lowkey so far, despite coming into the tournament as one of the title favourites. But on this day, the tables were turned. "I'm just really happy with how I managed to deal with what she gave me and with my composure out there", Andreescu said.

Britons set to protest Johnson's Brexit move
Chancellor Sajid Javid defended Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament while speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today program. The decision to prorogue Parliament prompted an angry backlash from MPs and opponents of a no-deal Brexit.

But instead of turning pro, as she wanted to, the parents of Ahn - who was born within walking distance of the US Open - wanted her to go to college and get an education.

"I think for so long that's been kind of my whole thing, is just continue to press forward and just realize that I belong on this level".

Taylor Townsend is charging into the US Open spotlight the same way she charges to the net in her matches, stars and strangers congratulating her run to the last 16. But she's a canny judge of talent. She used a drop shot from the baseline to win one point, a service ace to win another, but then was burned by another drop shot attempt when Wozniacki chased it down and flipped it over her. A lot of the players know who she is. "I knew this kid had something special", Flipkens wrote on Twitter after Ashleigh Barty won the French Open in June and became world No. 1.

"So many people have been just saying congratulations and sending me really nice messages, I was just shocked because I didn't think that many people cared", she said.

Andreescu got a little flustered during her press conference when she was asked a question about being up to No. 9 in the live rankings.

So it was a little premature.

"Obviously it wasn't the best year for me, but really, there's nothing you can do when your body sometimes doesn't cooperate".
