Just before beating Kerber, the 19-year-old defeated Naomi Osaka, one of the greatest tennis players, in the third round. These 2 days are probably two of the best days of her life and the remarkable moments of her career.

Fernandez said, “Honestly, the crowd has been amazing, so thanks to them I was able to win. “I was just trusting my game. She (Kerber) is an incredible fighter, incredible player. Just putting one more ball back in, fighting, and just having fun on the court.”

After a fifth-set tiebreak against Alexei Popyrin, Medvedev reached the last 16. He reached the men’s singles quarter-finals after the fourth-round match.
