All Time High For Andreescu


The eighteen-year-old Canadian, Bianca Andreescu, gets the honors of mover of the week for her exceptional performance at the ASB Classic in Auckland. She made it to her first WTA singles final by defeating the number one seed, Caroline Wozniacki; the number three seed, Su-Wei Hsieh; and the number six seed, Venus Williams. Andreescu put up a valiant effort in the final; however, she could not get past the number seed, Julia Goerges. Andreescu hoped to take this form deep into the Australian Open draw; however, after getting through the qualifying rounds, she lost to the thirteenth seed, Anastasija Sevastova, in the second round. Yet, despite the loss, the Canadian is one to keep an eye on this season.
