Coco Gauff, Bianca Andreescu, Boris Becker among others congratulate Leylah Fernandez on return to winners' circle at Hong Kong Open
There she will meet a familiar foe in Katerina Siniakova after sealing a 6-3, 6-4 win over Aliaksandra Sasnovich on Friday afternoon. For reference, she has already played once today and had to return only a few hours later due to rain delays yesterday.
But given her current form, it seemed nothing was stopping her. Albeit Siniakova might next as Laura Siegemund had to withdraw due to injury meaning that the Czech ace will be the fresher of the two come tomorrow.
It is an eight match winning streak though and could be 10 come the week end with a back-to-back title for Fernandez. She only needed just over an hour to complete the job over Sasnovich too just like in her earlier game so wasn't enduring a marathon to get over the line.
