Two years ago, Bianca Andreescu (WTA 7) made a real sensation on the professional court. She won three tournaments, including the US Open (her first appearance was in a New York event). Health issues, which also haunted her in 2019, and the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the Canadian from playing a game last season. After 24 months, she returned to the place of greatest victory. Already in the first round, Andreescu faced a big problem. The winner was 7:5, 4:6, 7:5 Viktorija Golubić (WTA 47).

In the first set, the Canadian won four straight games of 3:5. In the second game, there was one breakout, which Golubić scored in 5:4. In the deciding edition, Andreescu came back from 2:4. She sent seven aces in the two-hour match. and 48 minutes. I sent 40 closing strokes for 36 non-forced fouls. The Swiss have 15 straight wins and 26 fouls. Both tennis players scored three breaks.

Aside from winning the 2019 US Open, Andreescu hasn’t made it past the second round in the remaining six Grand Slam matches. At this year’s Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon won one match in total. The Canadian’s other competitor will be Lauren Davis (WTA 98), who defeated 6:2, 2:6, 6:3 and Victoria Tomoa (WTA 117). In one hour and 43 minutes, the American scored 12 out of 14 netting points and four breaks.
