After qualifying for her first final of the season, Bianca Andreescu finished second at the Libema Open in 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, on Sunday.

Andreescu, who turned 24 on Sunday, faced a hard-fought battle against No. 2 seed Liudmila Samsonova in the championship match, ultimately conceding in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 5-7. Despite claiming the first set, the Canadian could not resist Samsonova's rally and concluded her tune-up tournament on the grass before Wimbledon.

Andreescu failed to capitalize on her early lead as world number 15 Samsonova came back from a set down to win her first title since 2022 and improve to five career titles. The match lasted two hours and 34 minutes.

After securing the first break of the match in the third game, Andreescu immediately surrendered in the fourth. Undeterred, she took advantage of another break opportunity in the fifth game to take a 3-2 lead. From there, Andreescu held her serve and took the first set.

Trailing, Samsonova quickly countered by securing an early break and taking a 3-0 lead in the second set. Although Andreescu managed a crucial break in the fifth game, Samsonova kept her composure and broke the Canadian again in the sixth game to lead 4-2. Samsonova then confidently held serve in the seventh and eighth games to take the second set and force a decisive third.

Samsonova continued her momentum by breaking Andreescu early in the third for a 3-1 lead. Despite Andreescu's attempt to level the set with a break in the eighth game, she struggled to hold serve and Samsonova conceded another break in the eleventh game. This break allowed Samsonova to lead 6–5 and secure victory on her serve in the ensuing game.

Andreescu advanced to the final with a semi-final victory over Hungary's Dalma Galfi in straight sets of 6-4, 6-2. Andreescu played her fourth match at a tournament for the first time since the 2023 Miami Open and was in charge from start to finish.

She won 60 percent of the points on both her first and second serves, while keeping Galfi under constant pressure. Converting chances was the difference in the match. Andreescu converted four of her five break point chances, while Galfi broke the Canadians' serve just once on four chances.

“It feels great,” Andreescu said after the match. “I believe that all the hard work I put in and perseverance and never giving up is really paying off.”

Andreescu defeated four-time Grand Slam title winner Naomi Osaka of Japan in a quarterfinal on Friday.

This is only the second tournament Andreescu has played this season after returning from a lengthy injury layoff. The former US Open champion has not lifted a trophy since winning her first major title in September 2019. Her last final took place on the grass in Bad Homburg two years ago.

Currently sitting at No. 228, Andreescu's progress this week will give her a solid boost to get back into the Top 200.
