Canadian Bianca Andreescu’s amazing run ends in final of ASB Classic
Mississauga, Ont., teen had strong start, taking 1st set in only 30 minutes
Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu came up one set short in an attempt at her first WTA Tour title.
Julia Goerges of Germany beat the 18-year-old Andreescu 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 on Sunday in Auckland, New Zealand, to win the ASB Classic for the second year in a row.
“It is disappointing, I was one game away from winning the match, so I’ll probably be thinking about this for the next couple of days,” said Andreescu, who earned entry into the tournament as a qualifier. “But I can’t complain. I had an amazing week, I beat a lot of top players. I’m just really proud of myself.”
