Julia Goerges wins the title in Auckland after ending the unexpected dominance of the 18-year-old Bianca Andreescu.

The teenager surprised the tennis community after storming in the final in Auckland coming straight from the qualifications. That means that Canadian had to win 7 consecutive matches and beat 2 former world no.1 on the way  (Carolina Wozniacki and Venus Williams) before clashing against the German.

The final

Bianca stunned Julia at the beginning of the match after grabbing a 4-0 lead before winning 6-2.

Goerges managed to engage in a proper dogfight in the second set finally. The German had to serve to remain in the match when she was 4-5 down, but eventually, that was the beginning of her triumph as she won 9 of the following 10 games before winning the match 2-6 7-5 6-1 after 1 hour and 45 minutes.

This is Julia’s 7th career title. Andreescu will make a considerable jump in the rankings as she is projected to gain 45 places to be the new world no.107. The hope is that the Canadian will maintain at least this level and her fantastic tennis full of variations. More to come.

I fell in love with tennis after the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. From that moment I started to check all the possible stats and the stories behind the tennis players. I have a huge passion for Roger Federer, a great respect for Rafael Nadal and I am interested in the newcomers. Aryna Sabalenka and Naomi Osaka are my favorite players on the WTA tour.
