"It wasn't easy today. Kerber played a really great match but I think I took the momentum from the final into this match."

Andreescu said after the win.

"I expected a lot of good things from her but I think I was one step ahead today."

She added.

The Canadian star also became the third player besides Petra Kvitova and Belinda Bencic to register double-digit winning streaks so far this season.

"I know I was up 4-1 in the second set, but I tried to leave that past me, and I took my chances in the third. Nothing was really going on in my head, but I was just super tired. I just tried to save as much energy as possible but I left it all out there today. I felt that she wasn't playing her best tennis, so I kind of just fed off of that."
