Taylor Townsend Keeps Going to the Net, and Keeps Going at the U.S. Open

“It’s a Grand Slam, there’s more at stake, obviously,” Andreescu said of the Open. “But I don’t try to focus on that. When I step on court, I’m really good at blocking my surroundings, and I’m just in the zone from A to Z. Well, I try to.”

The 26th-seeded Julia Görges dominated the seventh-seeded Kiki Bertens 6-2, 6-3, and will face No. 23 Donna Vekic in the fourth round.

No. 13 Belinda Bencic moved on to the round of 16 when her opponent, Anett Kontaveit, withdrew from their match with an illness. Bencic will play No. 1 Naomi Osaka, who beat Coco Gauff in a blockbuster match Saturday night.
