The first 2019 WTA Canadian Open semi-final will see two of the WTA Tour’s most exciting young prospects face each other when Sofia Kenin takes on local favourite Biance Andreescu on Saturday. Kenin is the marginal favourite, with leading bookmakers pricing the American at 1.66 to win the match and reach the final. 

2019 WTA Canadian Open Sofia Kenin Form


Nationality: United States
Age: 20 (14/11/1998)
World Ranking: 29
Career Titles: 2
2019 Titles: 2
Canadian Open Best Result: Qualifying Second Round (2018)

Sofia Kenin’s breakthrough season has already contained plenty of highlights, including her first WTA Tour titles – at Hobart and Mallorca – and a win over Serena Williams at the French Open

The American has been in scintillating form at the Canadian Open in Toronto. She began in the first round with a routine 6-4, 6-3 win over Su-Wei Hsieh, and followed that up with one of the biggest wins of her career – taking out World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty 6-7, 6-3, 6-4. Then came a 6-2, 6-2 thrashing of Dayana Yastremska, before an impressive 7-6, 6-4 win over sixth seed Elina Svitolina. 

Kenin is clearly in the zone in Toronto, dominating each of her opponents from the baseline with her attacking groundstrokes. Against Bianca Andreescu, she faces another attacking player, although Kenin’s greater match fitness could make the difference.

2019 WTA Canadian Open Bianca Andreescu Form


Nationality: Canada
Age: 19 (16/06/2000)
World Ranking: 27
Career Titles: 1
2019 Titles: 1
Canadian Open Best Result: First Round (2018)

Bianca Andreescu burst on to the WTA Tour scene earlier this season by winning her first career title at the prestigious Indian Wells event. Since then, though, the talented Canadian has been hampered by injury layoffs: before the Canadian Open, she had not played since the French Open in May.

Andreescu has made up for lost time in Toronto, although she has been taken the distance in each of her four matches. She started with a 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 win over fellow Canadian Eugenie Bouchard, before again bouncing back from a set down to defeat Daria Kasatkina 5-7, 6-2, 7-5.

Andreescu then delivered impressive back-to-back performances to beat fifth seed Kiki Bertens 6-1, 6-7, 6-4 in the third round and third seed Karolina Pliskova 6-0, 2-6, 6-4 in the quarter-finals. 

The Canadian teenager is undoubtedly lacking match fitness, as evidenced by her up-and-down displays in each round. However, she has proved her class and grit to win each match.
