It was the first final of a tournament of the WTA tour for the Ontario girl Bianca Andreescu.
Even if she has continued to impress in the final of the tennis tournament in Auckland, New Zealand, the young Canadian Bianca Andreescu has finally bowed in three sets in the face German Julia Georges.
Participating for the first time in a final of the WTA tour, the Ontario 18-year-old has won the first round 6-2, and then lose the next two, 7-5 and 6-1, to face the 14th player in the world.
To reach the final, Saying, 152nd player in the world, had had to defeat the American Venus Williams and the Danish Caroline Wozniacki.
Julia Georges, who had eliminated la Québécoise Eugenie Bouchard in the quarter-finals, has therefore retained his title, acquired last year.
