Leylah Fernandez, A 19-Year-Old Montrealer, Is In The Semi-Finals For The US Open

Tennis fans across the world have been tuning in to the U.S. Open since August 30. With only a few days left of this tennis tournament, we're proud to say that a 19-year-old Montrealer, Leylah Fernandez, has made it to the semi-finals.

Fernandez recently participated in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, where she got to the Women's Singles Second Round, but lost to Czech player Barbora Krejčíková.

She's so good that she's even caught the eye of the iconic Magic Johnson.

Back on August 13, Fernandez dedicated an Instagram post to Montreal, saying "Montreal... thank you for the love and support this week. I am so proud to play in front of my home. It wasn't the result I was hoping for, but I am always learning."

If you're hoping to catch Fernandez in action, you can watch her play on Thursday, September 9, against Aryna Sabalenka. The time of the match has yet to be determined.
