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

“[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.”
