Canadian Leylah Fernandez was defeated by Martina Trevisan of Italy in the quarterfinals of the French Open.

Trevisan won the match 6-2, 6-7, 6-3.

Fernandez, who was slowed by an apparent injury in the quarterfinal, entered the French Open as the 18th-ranked player in the world but was unable to get past the 59th-ranked Trevisan.

Trevisan will play the winner of the all-American quarterfinal between Sloane Stephens and Coco Gauff in the semifinals.

Fernandez, a Montreal native, was the only Canadian remaining in action at the French Open. The quarterfinal appearance was the furthest the 19-year-old has made it in a Grand Slam event since she fell to Emma Raducanu in the 2021 U.S. Open Final.

It’s also the most success she’s had at Roland-Garros. Her previous best was reaching the third round in 2020.
