Andreescu: I did the impossible
CANADIAN teenager Bianca Andreescu says she “did the impossible” by beating seventime Grand Slam champion Venus Williams a day after defeating world number three Caroline Wozniacki.
Andreescu, 18, won 11 games in a row on her way to a 6-7 (1-7), 6-1, 6-3 win over Williams at the Auckland International, to reach her first WTA semi-final.
Ranked 152nd, she won three qualifying matches to reach the main draw and then beat Wozniacki on Thursday.
“My goal was only to qualify and maybe get a couple of rounds in, but now I’ve beaten a couple of top players,” she said.
“I believe that anything is possible and I think I did the impossible (against Williams).”
