Andreescu, the tennis player who dethroned Bouchard in Canada

The young Canadian tennis player has been confirmed as one of the tennis players to follow after winning Muguruza and reach the semifinals in Indian Wells.


Bianca Andreescu has become at 19 years old the great revelation of the Indian Mandas Premier Mandatory. The young Canadian tennis player, who agreed to the final table of the tournament thanks to an invitation, is already in the semifinals of the tournament after winning Hispanic-Venezuelan Garbiñe Muguruza for a convincing 6-0 and 6-1. To reach the semifinals Andreescu had to overcome in the first round the Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu by 6-7 (3), 6-3 and 6-3. Since then the Canadian has not given any set so far in the tournament against Dominika Cibulkova (double 6-2), Stefanie Voegele (6-1 and 6-2) and Qiang Wang (7-5 and 6-2) .

In recent months Andreescu has made a name for himself in tennis and in tennis in Canada, where last year he received the prize for the best tennis player in the country ahead of Eugenie Bouchard. The Canadian currently occupies the 60th position in the WTA ranking although in the standings next week she will climb many positions after reaching the semifinals of Indian Wells, where she will fight against Elina Svitolina for a place in the final.

Andreescu already pointed ways since its inception in 2015, when he reached the final of the ITF tournament in Gatineau, where he would win the title the following year, in 2016. That year he would also win another ITF Canadian tournament, Saguenay, beating tennis players such as Jenifer Brady or Catherine Bellis.

In 2017 Andreescu added two new ITF titles at Rancho Santa Fe and Santa Margherita di Pula and played the previous rounds of Roland Garros and Wimbledon. At the age of 17 Andreescu made her debut in the final phase of Wimbledon, although she lost her first match against Kristina Kucova of Slovakia by 6-4 and 6-3.. In addition, that year she reached the quarterfinals of the Washington tournament, where she beat Camila Giorgi and Kristina Mladenovic before falling to Andrea Petkovic. In 2018 Andreescu caressed the title in the ITF tournaments of Kofu and Kashiwa (in both finals he fell to the Thai Luksika Kumkhum) and won the ITF tournament in Florence and Norman.

However, Andreescu has made the big leap to the first row of tennis in 2019. In the Auckland tournament the Canadian was overtaking rivals in the previous round and in the final table managed to beat Caroline Wozniacki, Venus Williams and Su-Wei Hsieh among others before falling in the final in three sets against Julia Goerges. Andreescu also had to play on Open of Australia and in his debut in the final draw of the Australian major beat the American promise Whitney Osuigwe before falling in three sets in the second round against the Latvian Anastasija Sevastova. A step before Andreescu achieved his first WTA title (125K) after winning at Newport Beach, where he beat his compatriot Eugenie Bouchard among others. Before Indian Wells, Andreescu was also close to the title in Acapulco, although he fell in the semifinals before Sofia Kenin. The Canadian has before her a great opportunity to add her first big title in Indian Wells and establish herself in the world tennis elite.
