On September 7, 2019, the US Open women's singles quarterfinals began. In a match at Arthur Ashe On Centre Court, American darling Gauff faces France's Garcia, who has recently gained momentum. In the end, the 29-year-old veteran Garcia defeated Gauff 2-0 (6-3 6-4) to advance to the final four of the Grand Slam women's singles for the first time in his career. For Garcia, it was the first time she had reached the top four after participating in a Grand Slam for the 42nd time in her career, and she herself was very excited after the game
Garcia has been in excellent form lately, and in the warm-up matches before the US Open, she swept all the way to the Cincinnati 1000 championship. Before coming to the top eight of the US Open, Garcia had only lost 20 sets in four matches, the shortest total time among the top eight players. The 29-year-old veteran has reached 4th place in his career-high rankings. However, in her career, she has never reached the top 4 in the previous 41 Grand Slams, which is also the 4th longest embarrassing record in history.
Facing homegrown darling Gauff, Garcia faced boos and hostility from 20,000 fans. But Garcia was unmoved, and in the first set of the match, Garcia played in a staggering state, and the opening scores made Gauff powerless, and the whole arena was dead. Garcia quickly took a 4-0 lead. Although Gauff quickly adjusted after that, at one point chasing 3-5, Garcia still seized the last chance and won the first set 6-3.
In the second set, Garcia broke again in the first set. After that, Garcia played steadily, facing the one-sided support of the fans to Gauff, Garcia had no fear, and finally held the advantage 6-4 to win another set, 2-0 to advance to the top four. The moment of victory, Garcia was very excited. She threw away the racket in her hand and laughed wildly!
After shaking hands with Gauff, Garcia ran directly on the field to celebrate. At this moment, Garcia had indeed waited too long. According to statistics, Garcia has finally reached the top 4 in 42 challenges in history, ranking third most in history, behind Likhovtezeva's 46 times and Vinci's 44 times.
