Canada's Andreescu eliminated in 2nd round of Australian Open

Canada's Bianca Andreescu was eliminated from the Australian Open on Thursday, dropping her second-round match 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 to Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia.

The loss halted a solid start to the 2019 tennis season for the 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., who was coming off her first final appearance at a WTA tournament two weeks ago.

Andreescu looked rejuvenated after a brief rain delay in the second set against Sevastova, coming back to break her opponent to go up 5-3 then holding serve.

Andreescu started strong with a break in the third set, but the 28-year-old Sevastova recovered with three breaks of her own for the match.
