Serena Williams vs Bianca Andreescu Prediction & Betting Odds - Rogers Cup Final
August 11, 2019
Serena Williams faces the home favourite Bianca Andreescu in the final of the WTA Toronto (aka the Rogers Cup) at the Aviva Centre in Toronto on Sunday afternoon.
Three-times Rogers Cup champion Williams overcame Czech qualifier Marie Bouzkova in three sets (1-6 6-3 6-3) in her semi-final on Saturday, having beaten the soon to be world no. 1 Naomi Osaka of Japan 6-3, 6-4 in the last eight (in what was a repeat of last year’s US Open final).
Andreescu became the first Canadian woman to reach the final of the tournament since 1969 in beating the American Sofia Kenin 6-4 7-6 (7-5) on Saturday, taking the victory on her 5th match point.
It’s already been a grueling tournament for the 19 year-old Andreescu, with Saturday’s victory being her first two-set win of the week. Her return to action in Toronto comes after missing the last couple of months with a shoulder injury.
The unseeded teenager from Mississauga has also accounted for a couple of big names in the Dutch fifth seed Kiki Bertens in the last 16 and Czech third seed Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals.
