WTA Quebec - 17 year old American Lauren Davis scores upset win over second seed Wickmayer

17 year old American Lauren Davis scored a big upset win on Wednesday at the WTA Bell Challenge in Quebec with a win over Belgian no. 2 seed Yanina Wickmayer. Davis needed only 63 minutes for the 61 61 win Wickmayer. "I just went out there the same way I go out every match - intense and focused, no matter who the player is," Davis told the press.

"I stayed focused and played my game and I'm really happy I was able to play so well against Yanina today. She has a big forehand and backhand, and a big serve too - but a lot of girls don't like the heavy spin I have, so I tried to mix that in a bit too.

To me the biggest difference between the juniors and the pros is that if you're up in the pros, you cannot let them back in the door, because there's a good chance they'll end up beating you. In the junior circuit you can probably relax a little bit and still end up winning the match.

I'm very happy to be in my first WTA quarterfinal but I'm just trying to keep myself grounded. My goal is just to keep improving every single day." In a first round match, top seed Dominika Cibulkova was upset by Belgian Kirsten Flipkens, 26 63 75.
