No. 5 Ons Jabeur vs. Ajla Tomljanović: 6-4, 7-6 (4)

Ons Jabeur cruised to a straight-set victory over Ajla Tomljanović 6-4, 7-6 (4) on Tuesday to punch her ticket to the U.S. Open semifinals for the first time in her career.

The No. 5 seed also became the first-ever African woman to reach the U.S. Open semifinals. She hails from the North African country of Tunisia.

The first set saw Jabeur take a 3-1 lead before Tomljanović climbed back to make it 3-3. Jabeur found herself back up by two games at 5-3, but Tomljanović held to make it 5-4.

Jabeur went on to win 6-4 in a rather unspectacular performance. Both players struggled to find their first serves, which continued into the next set.

The second set saw Jabeur take a 2-0 lead before Tomljanović fought back to make it a 5-4 set in her favor. Jabeur's play was good enough for her to force a tiebreak, which she went on to win in rather impressive fashion.

Jabeur will face Caroline Garcia in the next round.


No. 17 Carolina Garcia def. No. 12 CoCo Gauff: 6-3, 6-4

Caroline Garcia put an end to CoCo Gauff's time at the US Open on Tuesday night with a 6-3, 6-4 win at Arthur Ashe Stadium, becoming the first French woman to make a major semifinal since 2013.

Garcia is also just the third French woman to make the US Open semifinals in the Open era, joining Amelie Mauresmo (2002 and 2006) and Mary Pierce (2005).

The crowd in Flushing Meadows tried to Gauff going throughout the night, but this was Garcia's match from beginning to end. She dominated the action and overpowered Gauff for the victory.

The 28-year-old has yet to drop a set at the US Open, defeating Kamilla Rakhimova, Anna Kalinskaya, Bianca Andreescu, Alison Riske-Amriraj and Gauff all in straight sets.

Garcia will face No. 5 Ons Jabeur in the semifinals on Thursday. Jabeur leads their head-to-head series 2-0.
