Andreescu lost the first match and Fernandez lost the second set to give Switzerland a chance to go to the semi-final once more. They played in it last year as well and it seems like they are on the path to a final once more.
The opening set showed a very confident Bencic against Fernandez dominating play from the baseline. Bencic and Fernandez played a tight match in Guadalajara recently and Bencic won that match as well. This set went far easier than the first in that match as Bencic served up a bagel.
The second set was far more competitive as Fernandez played a better match despite being wonky on serve. She was down 4-5 when Bencic served for the match, breaking the Swiss. Still, Bencic remained calm and broke the serve of Fernandez once more to take the match 7-5 in the second set.
