Kerber needs to win Roland Garros for the career slam. Her best result is QF though, so not known for her clay prowess.

Kerber needs to win Roland Garros for the career slam. Her best result is QF though, so not known for her clay prowess.

I like Kerber, her game, her sportsmanship, she certainly has a chance if she can stay healthy, but she's got a tough road with all the competition in the WTA.

Bianca Andreescu is in the final of Indian Wells! Congratulations to a Canadian of Romanian nationality!

The seminal has just FINISHED:
B. ANDREESCU(WC)626
E. SVITOLINA(6)364

To me Bianca is the feminine Federer of WTA!
Svitolina didn't do much, except defending and hanging on, the whole match was on Bianca's racquet.
She can change directions like Halep, but she also has power and finesse (drop shots, lobs, slices etc)..
It was fun to see Svitolina loosing the power exchanges, on both wings, but especially on the BH side. Svitolina even told her coach as much during on court coaching...
Once Bianca builds her fitness even more she will move to greater things, like GSs!
Not that ridiculous phrase again, it wasn't on her bat at all she lost half the points, if Svitolina had served properly in games 1 and 7 set 3 at 40-15 she would have won. Bianca blew her away first set, after that she didn't. See how she does on quicker courts, when she hasn't so much time to line the ball up before getting too excited. She looks a strong girl though, Vondrousova also looks very promising.

She might have to play her in the near future, virtue signalling on the internet to competitors is a losers mentality.
Unreal. Players can’t have friends, they must all hate each other. No one can give a compliment.

You will join your boy that you fight with Serena about on the ignore list.
 
So Katie can’t compliment her friend? Because she only has a good serve?

Thought you were better than that.
I'm replying to WDC that Katie has a good serve and that's all so the comment on "Concentrate on your own game"makes no sense as I think she's right where her path is.
He's from England and people over there tend to think their player is over talented or something.

Got nothing to do with Katie own tweet nor can't compliment her friend stuff.

He told Katie to concentrate on her own game after Katie sent a very nice tweet regarding her friend.

Then read his next one, apparently Katie must hate Bianca because they may meet in the future.

Hey, now you get it!

Apparently Genie should also hate Bianca forever because they may play in the future.

You don't make sense, read what you wrote lol It was on Bianca's racquet all the time, including according to tennis.com. She dictated 80% of the points, had winners and UEs. You could have also listened to Svitolina's coach during the transmission if you don't believe me.
 
Bianca is always play lights out tho. I saw her match vs Venus and Muguruza, girl has no fear.

Watch a bit vs Svitolina, it seems that she has a lot of game to offer and adjusting based on her opponents.

Interesting that, despite winning 3 Slams, Kerber has yet to win a maiden Premier Mandatory title (WTA equivalent of the ATP Masters 1000s). This will be her 5th final at this level after 4 previous losses: 2012 Cincinnati to Li Na, 2013 Tokyo to Kvitova, 2014 Doha to Halep, 2016 Cincinnati to Pliskova.

Andreescu is the lowest ranked opponent she will face in one of these finals so will she be 5th time lucky tomorrow?

Fun fact: players can be friends. Wozniacki and Serena are one example and that’s a one sided H2H. Players CAN keep tennis seperate from friendship! Shocker.

Am trying to get this on Tennis Live Stream but it doesn't even advertise the match. Just says next match is Federer-Thiem and next WTA match is in Miami? :unsure:

Anyone have an alternative link? Thanks.

What a 2nd serve on set point. Takes real guts (or craziness) to go for that.

I don't have a subscription that lets me watch this, but I'll need to watch some highlights. Amazing run by the 18-year-old. I like Kerber, but it would be amazing if Bianca pulled this off!

There's an amusing subplot here: From the start, Andreescu has been accidentally hitting Kerber with the ball after winning a service game and bunting the extra ball across the net. Kerber doesn't look pleased by that.
