Who can beat Andreescu?
Note: The question isn't asking who will be the literally next person to beat Bianca, but who will actually be able to challenge her consistently.
Bianca Andreescu is basically unbeatable by all of the top players in 2019. Ever since the first time I properly saw her (vs Svtiolina in IW), I had a feeling that this woman just cannot lose.
And it's been true - she hasn't lost a proper match since! She has an unbeaten record against top 10 players too.
All throughout the NA hardcourt swing I was sure she would go undefeated. I didn't think she would lose even when she was down vs. Mertens or anybody else.
She even wins when she makes it difficult, when her opponents are playing well, and when she looks like she needs urgent hospitalisation.
Nobody really seems to know how to beat her right now, which is why she seems unbeatable in 2019.
So, who will be the one to finally beat her on a regular basis?
The biggest challenges I've seen her face were vs. Svitolina and Angie in IW. Both had chances to win those matches and neither were in great form at the time, but still...Bianca got it done. Bianca beat Angie the next week too.
I didn't think Serena could beat her at the USO, but I also expected Serena to play a bit better...so maybe Serena will take her revenge up next.
I actually think prime Sharapova would've had a good chance, but I guess we'll never know.
What do you think? Halep? Osaka? Someone else?
Stosur - Venus - Hingis - Diyas - Jankovic - Niculescu - Barty - Sabalenka
Gavrilova - Wozniacki - Kvitova - Zvonareva - Osaka - CSN - Sevastova
Aga - Cibulkova - Lisicki - Bencic - Cornet - Halep - Mladenovic - Davenport - Ostapenko
Some level of love/fascination for Ivanovic, Giorgi, Azarenka, Sharapova, Makarova, Kuznetsova
