Brengle in tourney quarters: Madison Brengle reached the quarterfinals of the Adelaide International 2 tournament Tuesday night, knocking off Rebecca Peterson in straight sets 6-3, 6-2.

It is the first time the Dover native has made a quarterfinal of a full WTA level event since May of 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany and her first hard court quarterfinal since January of 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand. Brengle has won two WTA titles in that timespan, one in 2020 and another in 2021, but those were WTA 125K events.

Brengle needed an hour and a half to down Peterson, breaking the Swede’s serve six times over the course of the two sets. She improved to 2-1 all-time against Peterson, avenging a 2-0 loss from October at the Rancho Santa Fe Open, an ITF event in California.

Brengle began her run in Adelaide, the final tournament before next week’s Australian Open, by defeating Anastasia Potapova 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 on Monday night.

Brengle is 18-3 in her last 21 matches across both WTA events and the ITF tour dating back to mid-October.

She will meet either fellow American Alison Riske or Anhelina Kalinina of Ukraine in the quarterfinals.
