Is Andreescu’s spiral hair tie actually magic?
Yes, she’s lost matches/had to retire with injuries even when she’s worn it, but when she hasn’t worn it ONLY BAD THINGS happen:
1. French Open R1 - forced to withdraw from the tournament due to shoulder injury
2. Rogers Cup Final - Serena retires due to back spasms, anticlimactic end to a hyped up match
3. China Open QF - loss to Osaka and end of winning streak
4. WTA Finals RR1 - loss to Halep and back injury
I can’t think of any other time she hasn’t worn it this year, but there’s a clear trend. Hopefully she never takes it off in 2020 lol.
