AUCKLAND, New Zealand – Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu handed the shock of the early season on Thursday evening as the 155 Worlds shocked the top seed Karolina Wozniacki to reach the quarter-finals of ASB Classic, 6-4, 6-4.
The 18-year-old qualifier won his best-ever standings over the World No. 3 ranking to reach his second four WTA, where he will face another former world champion and champion in the Grand Slam at Venus Williams.
Anderscu previously announced the WTA by reaching the last eight at Citi Open in Washington, DC. in 2017, where she upset the then world number 13 Christina Mladenovic for her previous best victory.
"I've shown myself to beat the best players like this, and it's really just a dream. I know I have the level. [My confidence] have risen 20 times today. She was No. 1 in the world and won the Grand Slam, "said the Canadian.
"I just wrestled to the end, I was in the zone and at one point, I did not even know the result. I was really pleased with my performance, I was trying to stay right now, but at 5-4 in the second set, I really knew that I had then. "
