THE LOWDOWN

CAROLINE GARCIA

World number 17 Caroline Garcia made it nine wins on the spin with an assured display over 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu on Friday. The 28-year-old burst into form this summer after a couple of years in the wilderness, winning her eighth and ninth WTA titles at the Bad Homburg Open and Poland Open before a third career Masters title came in emphatic fashion at the Cincinnati Open three weeks ago. Former world number four Garcia is through to the round of 16 at the Us Open for a first time, seeing her reach the second week of all four majors.

ALISON RISKE-AMRITRAJ

World number 29 Alison Riske-Amritraj has overcome two tough youngsters in the second and third round of the US Open, beating 20-year-old Camila Osorio and 21-year-old Xiyu Wang in three sets each. The 32-year-old is a popular player at the US Open, where she reached the round of 16 for a first time nine years ago, but her best showing at this level was a run to the quarter-finals of Wimbledon in 2019 where she lost to Serena Williams.

THE PREDICTION

This could be a proper battle on Sunday between red-hot Caroline Garcia and home hopeful Alison Riske-Amritraj, who will attract the majority of the support as a notorious, battling underdog. The 32-year-old oddly leads this head-to-head record 2-0 after beating Garcia at the Nottingham Open back in June, just before the Frenchwoman really came into form. This could go to three but the level that Garcia has found since should see her through in straight sets as one of the clear title contenders.
