Bianca Andreescu just reached her first-ever Grand Slam semifinal in her US Open main-draw debut.

The Canadian won Wednesday night after beating Belgium’s Elise Mertens by 3-6, 6-2, 6-3, 

According to WTA Tennis, the 19-year-old fought off Mertens in just over two hours of play, becoming the first teenager and Canadian to reach the final four at the year’s final Grand Slam event.

Andreescu will face fellow first-time Grand Slam semi-finalist Belinda Bencic, Switzerland, in the final four. It will be the first meeting between Andreescu and Bencic.

Andreescu recently won titles in Indian Wells and Toronto and has become a part of the Top 10. 

Andreescu is on an 11-match winning streak overall.
