Andreescu of Mississauga, Ont., quickly found herself in a 3-0 hole in the first set after the Spaniard broke the Canadiens’ serve twice

But she seemed to settle down and went on to win six of the next seven games

With momentum on his side, Andreescu got his third break point to win the 51-minute opening set

“I’ve never played it before and it’s hard to tell how a player plays online so I think I was a little caught off guard,” Andreescu said of his slow start. / p>

“I felt like I was doing too much at first, but I understood it and I adjusted”

Neither player was able to take advantage of their serve in the second set Andreescu struggled the most, never holding the serve in the entire set

She was called in for a time violation while serving at 1-1, and appeared frustrated as she let the referee know that she disagreed with the decision before taking some delay 2-1

The Spaniard finally held her serve on her fourth try, putting her ahead 5-3 before breaking Andreescu for the fifth time to send her to a decider

Both players had their service play in the third set until Andreescu used a mixture of power and finesse to smash his opponent for a 3-2 lead.

Andreescu then let out a roar as she fought to hold the serve and come back 4-2, and was equally elated when she broke her opponent a second time to resume the serve with a chance to win the match

“She doesn’t give you any rhythm at all and those high heavy balls you have to generate your own and that consists of leg power, brastu power put it all in It was tiring towards the end of the second set, “said Andreescu

Andreescu mentioned earlier in the tournament that she had groin problems, but said after the game on Wednesday: “Groin is doing great, no pain anywhere”

This is Andreescu’s third tournament after a 16-month absence following a knee injury.She is trying to regain form from her groundbreaking 2019 season when she won three tournaments, including the US Open

Andreescu returned from sacking in February at the Australian Open, losing in the second round of the Grand Slam

The 20-year-old Canadian followed that up by reaching the semi-finals of an event in Melbourne for players knocked out early from the Australian Open, but a leg injury sustained there prevented her to Miami

Andreescu, who has been in Wednesday night’s 31-1 game in North America since the start of 2019, admitted she had a minor groin problem earlier in Miami

Sorribes Tormo, ranked 58th in the world, had already matched her career best for wins in one season with 15 before facing Andreescu
