Tennis Canada remarked on Andreescu’s recent match in which she ultimately managed to take the win against her opponent, Hsieh Su-Wei.
“[Andreescu] made light work of Hsieh Su-Wei, defeating the No. 3 seed 6-3, 6-3 in the semi-finals with a flawless display of all-court tennis,” Tennis Canada reported.

“Dominating from the baseline, behind it, and at the net, Andreescu looked every bit the superstar she’s become following wins over Caroline Wozniacki and Venus Williams earlier in the week.”
As a result of her impressive win streak, Andreescu is ranked around #107 in the Women’s Tennis Association, up from her previous ranking of #152.
Andreescu will be going against defending champ Julia Goerges in the final.
