Mississauga native and tennis star, Bianca Andreescu lost in the final this morning for the Bad Homburg Open in Germany.

Andreescu competed against number 75 ranked seed, Caroline Garcia of France for the title.

This is Garcia’s third grass-court singles title, having previously won in Mallorca in 2016 and in Nottingham in 2019.

Andreescu was on track to win her first title since her famous triumph in New York three years ago.

The 2019 US Open winner hadn’t lost a set on her way to the final.

Andreescu successfully knocked off number seven seed, Martina Trevisan in Round 1 as well as top seed Dario Kasatkina in the quarterfinals.

The championship took 2 hours and 42 minutes to complete.

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) describes the final moments of the match.

“In the match’s final game, Garcia held serve from 0-30 down to close out the 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-4 win. She hit a crunching forehand winner at 30-30 to earn championship point, and dropped to the ground in celebration when Andreescu’s final ball floated long to end the championship.”

Andreescu’s next move is a first-round match against American qualifier Emina Bektas at the All England Club.
