Less than 24 hours after knocking off world No. 3 Caroline Wozniacki, the 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., downed the legendary Venus Williams 6-7 (1), 6-1, 6-3 in a quarterfinal on Friday at the ASB Classic.

Andreescu said she purposely stayed off social media after the Wozniacki match, though added she might take a peek following the triumph over Williams.

After delivering a forehand, crosscourt victor out of the reach of the top-seeded Wozniacki on match point, an emotional Andreescu bent down and put her hands over her head as she received a huge ovation from the crowd in the aftermath of a two hour 14 minute match.
