Amanda Anisimova’s impressive reemergence as a formidable force in 2022 has continued at Wimbledon with the American ending the dream run of Frenchwoman Harmony Tan.
Displaying significant power from the baseline, the 20-year-old proved far too strong for the woman who upset Serena Williams in the opening round, posting a decisive 6-2, 6-3 victory.
Anisimova, who has overcome some significant challenges to recapture the form that identified her as a talent of the future when a teenager, was outstanding against Tan.

World No.1 Iga Swiatek and fellow American Coco Gauff, who Anisimova defeated in three sets on Saturday, have been the standard bearers of a new generation taking charge in women’s tennis.

“It is amazing to be in a quarter-final here. It is a dream come true right now,” she said.
“It is my first quarter-final at Wimbledon. I am just so happy. I [am] just trying to soak in the moments. I [have] stepped on to these courts and I just wanted to entertain you guys.”
