Place your bets

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

My guess would be Petra or Simona from the current top 10. Of course the top 10 changes every few weeks, so it may well be 'Other'.

Bencic gave her the toughest test in the USO and she is now in the Top 10; so that is my choice probably occurring in the YEC

Since Bianca has an utterly dreadful music taste (Drake) she needs to get her butt kicked by this top-10 (amateur) player:

Simona Halep is my bet.

Bianca has wins against Pliskova, Svitolina, Bertens, Williams and Bencic.

The active top 10 players Bianca has yet to face, and hence yet to get a win against, are Barty, Osaka, Halep and Kvitova. So I will say one of these four.

Re: Who will be the first top 10 player to defeat Andreescu?

It won't be a top 10 player. Bianca tends to play to the level of her opponent and raises her game against serious opposition.

I can see her losing to a 40th or 50th ranked player. Someone who makes the MD of Slams but is not a threat to win anything. I can see it be a 1st or 2nd round match that Bianca just doesn't take seriously enough. She goes through the motions while her opponent plays out of their mind and trees the entire match.

That happens sometimes, and it doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things. Sometimes the best players have off days and lose to scrubs.

Halep- Her idol (It's weird she says Simona is her idol but their games are different. In fact, I have never known Halep for variety).

Maybe Bencic but I see Bibi beating her again if she doesn't improve her mentality. She was playing her better game compared to Bibi in that SF and still lost in straight sets.

You're not answering the question: I'm not asking what her next loss is.

Halep - maybe Bibi will get starstruck.

Pliskova -she does well in Premiers. If she happens to get a good serving day then Bibi (and most players) are toast.

Ash Barty!!

The question is malformed.

Her next loss to a top 10 player will be a player who is not top 10 right now.

The next player to beat Andreescu might indeed not be a top 10 player. Granted.

But that doesn't answer the question. No matter how many non top 10 players beat Andreescu prior to her losing to her 1st top 10 player, it is inevitably only a matter of time before some player in the top 10 does defeat her. And that is what this poll is asking. Who will be the 1st top 10 player to defeat Andreescu. NOT who will be the next player to beat Andreescu.

No it is not. It is a clear justifiable question and it is one that there will be an answer to at some point.
