"She played great but I'm happy to be through" - Andreescu after winning start in Berlin

Bianca Andreescu won a match at the bett1open in Berlin for the first time in her career, edging past Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 4-6, 6-4.

Andreescu had won only one tour-level grass-court match in her career coming into Monday's first-rounder, but the 2019 US Open champion was able to double her grass-court match-win total with a 2-hour and 16-minute triumph over Siniakova. It was a topsy-turvy affair that featured 13 breaks as well as a rain delay.

The delay actually kind of helped Andreescu because it came at a time when Siniakova played better tennis overall. Speaking of the match, Bianca said:

"I was playing the right tactics but on grass one point can change the whole match, the set, the game. So I really had to stay focused. She played great tennis, but I'm happy to get through."

Up next for her is Karolina Pliskova and that's a serious matchup.
