Nick Kyrgios has a tantrum. He was upset with spectators talking and yelling while he was tryin to serve.

Down one set and frustrated throughout much of the night, the 19-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., seeded 15th, was nonetheless able to compose herself under the bright lights, battling back against the No. 25 seed Mertens to win a gruelling three-set match, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3. The match lasted two hours and one minute.

Andreescu is now the second Canadian to ever advance to the U.S. Open semifinals — after Carling Bassett in 1984 — and the fourth woman in history to reach the semifinals in her Open debut. Andreescu will play the No. 13-ranked Swiss tennis player Belinda Bencic in Thursday night's semifinal.

WOW! Bianca Andreescu won and made history as the 1st woman to ever win the US Open in her first appearance in the Tournament. She’s 19, Canadian, and on fire. Amazing match. The crowd was against her but she tuned them out and stayed disciplined. :rockon:

The shift is complete in women's tennis. GoGo Coco!

Congrats, yes she is on a tear this year, not just in wins but sets dropped
