American girls continue their success at the U.S. Open

Though Venus and Serena Williams are the only two American women (yes, Tracy Austin and Nick Bollettieri--they are adults) to make a splash in singles at the U.S. Open, the story is different among the juniors. Four of the eight quarterfinalists were American, and now two of the four semifinalists are, too.

Number 2 seed Melanie Oudin defeated American Madison Brengle in three sets in today's quarterfinal contest, and Coco Vandeweghe allowed 11th seed Tamaryn Hendler only two games in her straight-set win. Gail Brodsky, however, lost in three sets to the 12th seed, Kristina Mladenovic.
