Leylah Fernandez reflects on 12 months since US Open final

Leylah Fernandez says she is happy with the way she has been performing since making her first Grand Slam final at last year’s US Open. Fernandez, 19, was ranked around the 70th place when she stunningly reached the US Open final last season.

Since then, Fernandez has appeared in one final as earlier this year she went all the way in Monterrey. Fernandez has also had one more notable Grand Slam run as she reached the French Open quarterfinal this year. It should be noted that Fernandez was severely injured during her French Open quarterfinal and that was one of the big reasons why she was beaten by Martina Trevisan.

“I’m happy with the way that I’ve been performing. I thought everything was going to be perfect. I knew there were going to be a few bumps in the road and I was just going to have to find solutions, go through those tough moments.

I think it was a great learning experience to not only learn about my tennis game, but also about myself, what are things that I enjoy doing, what are the things that has helped me in those moments, trying to keep getting better as a person and enjoying my time on tour,” Fernandez said, via Tennis Majors.

Fernandez hoping for another good US Open run

After the French Open, Fernandez missed out on the entire grass season, including Wimbledon. Earlier this month in Toronto, Fernandez made her return to competitive action after being out for two and a half months.

Since returning, Fernandez picked up a second round exit in Toronto, while she was beaten in the Cincinnati first round. Fernandez hasn’t had an ideal preparation for the US Open but she will certainly give her absolute best at Flushing Meadows.

In the US Open first round, Fernandez plays Oceane Dodin. Fernandez and Dodin will be going head-to-head for the first time when they meet in the US Open first round.
