Romanian #3 will stop Townsend's run...she will have enough variety on her own racket that volleys won't phrase her and she'll also come to net herself...and Bianca always plays better in the important moments...

I wonder if TT has picked up some good Romanian curse words?

Not sure why you are saying she is not her best....she has had 3 straight sets wins in row...not playing a 3 setter yet is huge for her. Also, don't go by scorelines...she has her usual walkabouts and way too casual games when she is in lead but then she immediately raises her game when she wants. She is playing fine.

Well, first, she is Canadian now!
Second, i think Taylor will fight with all her heart but here is where her journey ends!
No serious tennis fan thought Sorana Carstea, nowadays, will eliminate Taylor!
Still, i hope it will be an exciting match :)

Depends, does Bianca know how to lob?

Andreescu finally got on Ashe and didnt look her best. The players on the WTA tour are so mentally fragile that rushing the net should work. Cirstea just caved in mentally late in set 1
If Andreescu wants to be a factor at majors, she will have to beat players like this. A 4th round could be Keys or Pliskova. This is a very soft section to be in

The "Romanian" got some junk in the trunk too.


So it would be an interesting match (tactics-wise).


Initially it would be somewhat difficult for Bianca, if only because she will try all sort of things to see which one works best.

The key is Andreescu wasn't born and raised in Romania. She has some game; not just a flaky clay-court grinder.
She was raised in Romania, then went back to Canada where she was born.
