Andreescu reaches 1st Grand Slam final with plucky win over Bencic

Andreescu reaches 1st Grand Slam final with plucky win over Bencic Bianca Andreescu never quits. The Canadian teenager booked a place in her first-ever Grand Slam final on Thursday, showcasing her never-say-die attitude in a gritty 7-6 (3), 7-5 win over Belinda Bencic in their US Open clash. Andreescu saved six break points in the first set before controlling the tiebreaker. She outdid herself in the second stanza, though, roaring back from a 5-2 deficit as her Swiss counterpart unraveled at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Andreescu will now meet Serena Williams in a rematch of this summer's Rogers Cup final, which saw the latter retire due to injury. More to come. Copyright © 2019 Score Media Ventures Inc.
