Coco Gauff reached her first quarterfinals at the US Open with a clear victory over the Chinese Zhang Shuai.
Competing in her home grand slam, the 12th seeded American won 7-5, 7-5 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Gauff, who is yet to drop a set at Flushing Meadows this year, will play France’s 17th seed Caroline Garcia in the next round.
“It feels crazy,” said the 18-year-old. “When Ashe Stadium sang my name, I tried not to smile.”
Speaking to Amazon Prime, she said: “It was really physical, it felt like a threesome.
“I really think my mentality helped me today.
“I’m so happy to be in my home slam and finally reach a quarterfinal. This tournament has always been special to me, I grew up watching it. I’m just so excited to keep playing and experiencing this atmosphere. ”
Like Gauff, this is the furthest Garcia has achieved in New York after comfortably defeating American Alison Riske-Amritraj 6-4, 6-1.
It is only the second time Garcia – who has been unbeaten in her last 10 singles matches – has reached the last eight in a Grand Slam, previously on the clay courts of Roland Garros in 2017.
Gauff faced Zhang for the second time after beating her in Miami earlier this year, conceding the break in her first game of service but immediately breaking back to nullify her opponent’s advantage.
The pair later traded breaks again in the opening set, with Gauff again breaking Zhang’s serve in the penultimate game before giving up the set.
As it started to rain in the Bronx and the stadium roof closed, Gauff nervously started the second set, staring at the break point before recovering to avert the danger.
In game five, Zhang had to salvage two break points of her own before breaking in game eight, with Gauff regularly throwing in double faults.
But from that point, Gauff began to assert control. After Zhang missed a set point, the American reeled off four straight games and secured a break point in the process.
Next up against Garcia, Gauff said: “She obviously played really good tennis, I played well too, so I think it’s going to be a great match.
“No matter what happens, win or lose, I know I’ll give it my all.”
