An­dreescu: I did the im­pos­si­ble

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - Sport -

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).”
