Mississauga Tennis Star Bianca Andreescu Advances to Finals at Rogers Cup


Bianca Andreescu is on a hot streak at this year’s Rogers Cup, and she just might be able to win it all.

According to a Rogers Cup statement, the 19 year old Mississauga native will be advancing to finals — making her the first Canadian woman in 50 years to reach the finals at this tournament.

[Andreescu] accomplished this historic feat by upending American Sofia Kenin in straight sets 6-4, 7-6 (5),” the statement reads.

Depending on the results of the other semi-final, Andreescu’s next and final opponent will either be Czech qualifier Marie Bouzkova or three-time Rogers Cup champion Serena Williams.

If she were to play the 23-time Grand Slam champion, it would mark the first time in their careers that the two have met. Meanwhile, Andreescu has faced Bouzkova in the past - she has a 2-0 record against the Czech qualifier.”

We’ll see soon if Andreescu has what it takes to win the whole tournament and bring back the championship.
