New Zealand’s Erin Routliffe and her Canadian partner Leylah Fernandez are through to the third round of the women’s doubles at the US Open in New York.

They’ve beaten the young American pair of Ashlyn Krueger and Robin Montgomery 6-2 6-2 in  57 minutes.

It was a dominant display from the 26-year-old Kiwi and 18 year old Canadian who made headlines yesterday with her stunning 3rd round singles win over defending champion Naomi Osaka.

Routliffe and Fernandez broke serve four times from five opportunities and saved all three break points against their own serve during the match.

They will play the Romanian pair of Monica Niculescu and Elena-Gabriela Ruse for a place in the quarter finals.

Routliffe who entered the tournament with a ranking of 108 is already projected to climb to around 78 by making the third round at Flushing Meadows.
