Bianca Andreescu of Canada overcame a slow start to deliver a 6-4 6-4 win over Lauren Davis of America in the second round of the US Open. The sixth seed was down a break four times during the match but never folded, firing 19 winners at Louis Armstrong Stadium as she bids to recapture the magic of her successful 2019 Flushing Meadows campaign.
The 21-year-old struggled with her first serve at times and committed three double faults in the second set but to secure the win, she was able to convert on all three break point opportunities in the set.
“This match wasn’t easy at all,” said the Canadian, as fans from her country cheered from the stands. “It was just a point here and there that really counted.”
Andreescu beat Serena Williams in the 2019 final playing in the main draw for the first time. However, missed the 2020 season due to injury and the challenges of playing in the Covid-19 pandemic.
