Ottawa’s Dabrowski and Mexico’s Olmos advance to women’s doubles quarters U.S. Open – Winnipeg Free Press

NEW YORK – Ottawa’s Gabriela Dabrowski and Mexican partner Giuliana Olmos have advanced to the women’s doubles quarterfinals of the U.S. Open.

Dabrowski and Olmos beat Japan’s Ena Shibahara and Asia Muhammad of the United States 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (8) on Sunday at the Grand Slam event.

They’ll play the third-seeded Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova, both from the Czech Republic, in Tuesday’s quarterfinal.

Dabrowski and Olmos, the tournament’s fifth seed, won a single tiebreak to Shibahara and Muhammad’s none.

Although Shibahara and Muhammad had three aces to Dabrowski and Olmos’s two, they had six double faults to the victors’ four.

Dabrowski and Leylah Annie Fernandez of Laval Que., who is still in the mixed doubles draw with American partner Jack Sock, are the last Canadians competing in the U.S. Open.

Fernandez and Sock are set to play Dabrowski and Australia’s Max Purcell in that tournament’s Round of 16 later Sunday.
