Leylah Fernandez’s impressive run at the US Open began by toppling three-seed defending champ Naomi Osaka and continued with a win over No. 16 seed Angelique Kerber to reach the quarters at Flushing Meadows.It’s been a heckuva week for the world’s No. 73. Fernandez was such a longshot to win the tournament that her odds weren’t even available prior to first serve!The 19-year-old who won her first WTA title in March now challenges Ukraine’s fifth-seed Elina Svitolina on Tuesday. Svitolina has been cruising as of late. The Ukrainian was the first tennis player from her country to earn an Olympic medal with a bronze in Tokyo, and followed that with her 16th career title at the Chicago Women’s Open.

Elina Svitolina opened with futures odds at +3300 ($100 → $3300) to win it all, but is on a nine-match winning streak without dropping a set so far at the slam.Also consider taking a head-to-head matchup bet between Fernandez and Svitolina.Svitolina is favored to win at -275 (bet $275 → $100) while Fernandez is the underdog at +225 (bet $100 → $225).These two have only faced off on the court once, where Svitolina defeated Fernandez in straight sets.

Term of the day

It’s Leylah Fernandez’s Moment
