Goerges to meet Andreescu in ASB Classic Women's Singles final

Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki had cruised through her opening match before losing to world number 152 Bianca Andreescu

With a shot out of bounds by her opponent Venus Williams, Andreescu managed her second upset in as many days, beating Williams 6-7, 6-1, 6-3 in a quarterfinal on Friday at the ASB Classic in New Zealand.

Not bad for a teenaged qualifier who started the week ranked No. 152 in the world.

After smashing a forehand to finish the match, Andreescu kneeled and placed her hands over head as the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

"What's really important for me is to stay in the present moment and I've been doing that all week and I'm beyond grateful right now".

"I believe that anything is possible and tonight I think I did the impossible", Andreescu said. I've had a couple of back issues the past couple of months.

She will take on the victor of the match between Hsieh Su-wei and Sara Sorribes Tormo in her semi-final.

"I got really tight at 5-0", she said. Well, she'd better get used to this sort of stuff, because she proved that win wasn't a one off.

It was just the latest win by Andreescu, who beat world champs Venus Williams, and then Caroline Wozniacki.

In years to come, people may say 'I was there when Bianca Andreescu became famous'.

Williams, 38, edged the first set with a timely break at 5-4 and broke again early in the second before serving up a masterclass with the loss of just five more points on serve on her way to victory.

"I've dreamed of playing on this stage against top players and now I'm here", Andreescu said.

There were two breaks of serve midway through the first set as neither player was able to dominate, so the set ended up going to a tiebreak, which Williams won 7-1.
