MELBOURNE, Australia – Bianca Andreescu has gotten through a couple of tough battles in the sudden onslaught of humidity in Melbourne.
And she’ll look to reach the final against No. 13 seed Marie Bouzkova, her old friend that 2019 Roland Garros first round – a marathon that stretched over two days and despite the victory, took her until that year’s Rogers Cup.
