Collins third American woman in Aussie quarters

Tennis

MELBOURNE, Australia — Danielle Collins took advantage of Elise Mertens‘ double fault on match point to advance to the quarterfinals and join two other Americans in the final eight at Melbourne Park.

Collins advanced 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 and will play the winner of the following match on Rod Laver Arena between two-time major winner Simona Halep and Alize Cornet.

Jessica Pegula and Madison Keys are the other Americans in the quarterfinals and will play their matches on Tuesday. It is the second year in a row that three Americans have featured in the quarterfinals.

Collins has won now seven major matches when losing the first set (two this week) since 2019. That is tied with Kaia Kanepi for most of any woman in that span.
