18-year-old Croatian beats fourth seed Agnieszka at US Open

Konjuh books a quarter-final spot after defeating Agnieszka Radwanska

18-year-old Ana Konjuh upset fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4 6-4 on Monday to claim the last women’s quarter-final spot at the US Open.

The Croatian teen, who won the 2013 U.S. Open juniors title after claiming the Australian Open juniors crown, lost her first service game but did not yield serve again.

She cracked 38 winners, including six aces, against the Pole, who has never gone beyond the round of 16 in five attempts at Flushing Meadows.

The power-hitting teenager, who became the first Croatian woman to reach the quarter-finals at a U.S. Open, avenged a second-round loss to Radwanska at Wimbledon, where she held three match points before falling 9-7 in the third set.

“It’s been an incredible night,” Konjuh said in an on-court interview. “This time I got revenge, so I’m really happy.”

The victory lifted Konjuh to a last eight match against 10th-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, who overcame sixth-seeded American Venus Williams 4-6 6-4 7-6(3).
