American Danielle Collins battled into the semifinals of the WTA 500 event in San Diego on Friday night, defeating Paula Badosa in a tight two-setter, 7-6 (5), 6-4.
And it was a major milestone for Collins: the 100th WTA win of her career.
After a sparkling college tennis career—she was a two-time NCAA singles champion, graduating from the University of Virginia in 2016—Collins recorded the first eight tour-level wins of her career as a 24-year-old during a breakthrough four weeks in March 2018, reaching the fourth round of Indian Wells (as a No. 117-ranked wild card) and the semifinals of Miami (as a No. 93-ranked qualifier).
She’s notched 92 more wins in the four and a half years since then.
