Mississauga's Bianca Andreescu has become the first Canadian since Carling Bassett in 1984 to make it into the semi finals of the U.S. Open.

Andreescu rallied from behind to beat Number 25 seed Elise Mertens of Belgium 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 in quarter final play.

The Canadian teen will face Belina Bencic in the semis tonight.

Andreescu finished last season ranked 178th in the world, but she is expected to move up into the Top 10 when new rankings come out on Monday.
