'Really enjoyed the way I played' - Wang Qiang quells Barty for US Open quarterfinal place

Playing in the second week of a major for the first time, No.18 seed Wang Qiang stunned No.2 seed Ashleigh Barty 6-2, 6-4 in one hour and 22 minutes to move into her maiden Grand Slam quarterfinal at the US Open 2019.

"I think I'm really focused on the court today," assessed Wang afterward. "I really enjoyed the way I played... I tried to play more patient [than in Zhuhai] today."

World No.18 Wang also paid tribute to McNamara: "He helped me a lot," she told the press. "It is really tough for me to hear he passed. I think he's always been there with me, yes.
