NEW YORK: American qualifier Taylor Townsend vowed to ride her surprise US Open run"all the way" after reaching the last 16 Saturday ahead of a blockbuster showdown between defending champion Naomi Osaka and teen phenom Coco Gauff.

"I made third round before but it was in another country. I got a lot of messages. It was a lot of love. My phone started dialing 911 by itself, I dont know what that was about. I just tried to keep my head on straight."AdvertisementCanadian teenager Andreescu continued to make serene progress on her first Flushing Meadows main draw appearance as she brushed past two-time US Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-4.

"I think everything is just clicking with me," she said."I've been through a lot with injuries and have just taken everything I've learned from the past couple of years and brought it into this year." The three-time champion holds a 34-1 record here against players outside the top 50, although Chung made the 2018 Australian Open semi-finals before a lengthy injury lay-off sent his ranking spiralling.

Even world number one and defending men's champion Novak Djokovic can't wait to see what Gauff and Osaka do.
