After a heavy day of upsets and triumphs at the Maui Women's Pro, Tyler Wright takes center stage. The now-2x World Champion took down wildcard Brisa Hennessy in the Quarterfinals to defend her World Title. Despite having previously eliminated (former) World No. 1 Sally Fitzgibbons in Round Two, Hennessy was unable to put up a solid score against the Australian.
"The plan was to just go out there and do what I'm good at," Wright said after her win. The World Champ, however, isn't done yet: She'll surf next in the Semifinals, against fellow Australian and 6x Champ Stephanie Gilmore.
