Team Bucie reaches the US Open semifinals
The success story continues for Bucie : after winning 2 Grand Slams together last year – the Australian Open and the French Open – they just qualified for their first semifinals at the US Open.
Last year, they unfortunately couldn’t compete in doubles since Lucie was forced to withdraw from the US Open due to an injury.
The 2016 US Open is however much more positive for them. After successfully defeating the Japanese pair, Aoyama-Ninomiya (6-4, 6-2) in the opening round and the team Arruabarrena/Savchuk (6-4, 6-1), Bucie had a tough battle in the 3rd round against Karolina Pliskova and Julia Goerges but they managed to win the 3 sets match (2-6, 7-5, 6-3).
In the quarterfinals, they got an easy win against the American pair Asia Muhammad and Taylor Townsend: 6-1, 6-2.
In the semifinals they will meet the Olympic gold medalists, Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina.
Best of luck to Lucie and Bethanie!
