The winner needed 1h 43min to defeat her 47th ranked rival in the WTA. The Maple Leaf player, who is ranked 90th on the professional circuit, took advantage of the service problems of Martic, who committed six double faults and maintained a 50% efficiency percentage with the first serves in hand.

The Ontarian broke three times in four occasions and was the victim of such a fate once out of the seven chances she offered to Martic.

In the quarter-finals, Andreescu could face the world's number one racket, Poland's Iga Swiatek. The latter faced the Belarusian Victoria Azarenka during the day.
