Andreescu had her remarkable 17-match winning streak come to an end in the quarter-finals in Beijing, losing in three sets to reigning Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka. Osaka went on to win the tournament.
The 19-year-old Canadian picked up +215 WTA ranking points and earned $178,665 in prize money for her troubles.
As a result, Andreescu moved up one spot on the WTA rankings, passing Simona Halep, to No. 5 in the world. That’s the highest ranking ever achieved by a Canadian woman, matching the national record set by Genie Bouchard in 2014.
