Mississauga Tennis Player Bianca Andreescu to Face Serena Williams in Rogers Cup Finals


Published August 11, 2019 at 2:35 am


We’re in for one exciting conclusion to this year’s Rogers Cup.

Earlier today (Saturday, August 10), Mississauga tennis player Bianca Andreescu defeated Sofia Kenin in semi-finals, landing her in finals for the tournament (the first Canadian woman in 50 years to do so!).

Now, following the conclusion of the other semi-final match, Andreescu’s opponent is set to be none other than tennis champion Serena Williams.

Both players appear to be looking forward to the match, which is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 11.

“In nine appearances at Rogers Cup, Williams will now have reached the final on five occasions,” RogersCup reports.

“History will be on her side when she faces Andreescu in their first-ever meeting on Sunday. The World No. 9 has lost in a final in Canada only once before.”

The full Rogers Cup schedule is available here.

Good luck to both finalists!
