Yesss!!
What a sore loser is this Svitolina. Go and enjoy the rest of the night in your room with Monfils
Bianca is here to stay.

A PM too far for Elina I am afraid.
Well done to Bianca, IW delivers yet again.

Re: IW SF: Andreescu outsmarts Svitolina 63 26 64

Andreescu is the real deal
She made this a bit harder than needed to be after winning 7 games in a row from 0-3 in the first set. She was really struggling on serve especially. But she held on and held her nerve in the end. Very impressive run for this 18 year old, the first of many to come.

As for Svitolina... She tried to push and grind Bibi into submission but it wasn't working today. Good riddance. Tennis is saved.

A star is born. Grit, determination, variety, power, resilience. Seeing her serving in pain and still perceviering and finally making it has been the second happiest moment of my tennis fandom life second only to seeing Simona winning the French Open. Haide Bianca. Let's go for the title!

Great resilience and composure by Andreescu, not to mention her shotmaking. Not sure about the overall quality of the match though - Svitolina was quite subpar throughout the entire contest - her shots rarely went past the service box and literally sat up to be struck for winners.

Andreescu absolutely peaked to take the first set from a double break in the first. Was spectacular to watch.

Re: IW SF: Andreescu outsmarts Svitolina 63 26 64

The casual dropshot to set up the last match point. And also all the ones before that one.

When the chips were down she gave Svitolina all spin and no pace to work with.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: IW SF: Andreescu outsmarts Svitolina 63 26 64

She just keeps winning doesn't she? It wasn't the prettiest match (despite a few nice droppers) and I still haven't really 'warmed' to her, but I can think of SOOO many girls who would have choked at the end there when Elina broke back. Not even just her fellow teenagers, but a good majority of the tour.

Into a PM final and a great reward for her hard work. I'd give her a chance against any player right now.

I'm sure Elaine will be dragged to hell and back in this thread so i'll just say that it's amazing how fit she is again, especially after the dramatic weight loss disaster last year. Back to back matches that are all this long and she still looks fresh and determined.

Re: IW SF: Andreescu outsmarts Svitolina 63 26 64

Such a proud moment for Canadian tennis <3

Bianca truly has exploded onto the scene in ways that were unimaginable. International F and SF, 125K title and now Premier Mandatory Final. These 3 months have been beyond crazy!

Allez Bianca for the title <3!!!

Re: IW SF: Andreescu outsmarts Svitolina 63 26 64

Svitolina can't even beat an exhausted and inexperienced opponent who gave her so many opportunities to take the match. She should have kept a high first serve percentage and hit deep loopy shots to tire Bianca out. Instead she kept going for her first serves, hit short ALL the time and allowed Andreescu to take control in majority of the rallies.

Bianca obviously has a lot of potential but it's a bit of a concern that she's so unfit for her age.
