Bianca Andreescu!

If she could just focus for a whole match, she wouldn't find herself in all of these 3 setters.

It's truly amazing how she can just turn it on when she needs to though.

Exactly.
Don't know if it was the lay-off or what, but she isn't making life easy for herself when she has to break serve down 3-5 to stay in the match (Kasatkina).
One thing though that is definitely becoming an annoying pattern is that she is actually looking more and more like a drama queen! :(

She's been doing these comebacks from the beginning.

SHE LOVES THE DRAMA. Great for Tennis, bad for Kerber.

Having shoulder issues at such young age is a bad omen: shows bad technique.

She better forget the prize money, hire the right trainer and fix this asap, or she's going to get crippled.
I agree with you guys about the injuries and the (fake) drama etc.

Listen Spanglish, I'm just as big a fan of Andreescu as you are but there are some patterns that are beginning to emerge that are
not very pretty.

As mentioned, injuries at such a young age is not a good sign.
Her fitness is very suspect, unless all the bending over is just a show/drama.
And the "She loves the drama" excuse just doesn't fly for playing multiple 3-setters one after the other.

She should have closed out Pliskova in two.

Her unnecessary display of drama is starting to get to tolerant me, and I'm not even playing against her! :)

i wouldnt like a player who is beating me left and right too :p
Yes that's true!
We must be very sober when we analyze what we've got here.

We have an extremely talented player.
No one can doubt that.

She has her own style, as all players have.

But there are issues/patterns that are starting to become very clear with her that are not,
how shall we say, flattering.

Being beaten by a player fair and square is easier to take than being beaten by a player
who displays all kinds of 'drama'.

Who are you referring to ...Kerber or Andreescu? Kerber is still the reigning queen of drama, more than Andreescu.

Still trying to figure out the drama. Do we doubt these injuries are legit? I mean do players withdraw from the FO and Wimbledon to keep up a facade of being injured?

Does looking fatigued in a match qualify as drama? I mean Sampras had the Hang Dog look mastered and no one called him dramatic. Is it sexism that seeing open displays of pain and emotion in women are “drama”.

She’s a 19 year old competitive kid. She’s won two Premiere events this year despite taking 3 months off. She plays a varied all court game that’s far more entertaining than most women to watch. I just don’t know where the hate is coming from.

It was just an immature remark made by kerber in the heat of the moment after losing two crazy matches to her within several days. And it went kind of viral a bit.

And also people tend to be turned off by expressive, confident, ambitious women.

That’s pretty much it...

Lots of tactical MTO's. Acts like she's down and out and can't move and then suddenly runs around like she never had an injury concern. Did it against Wozniacki in Auckland (went on to win the match) did it against Kerber in the Indian Wells final (went on to win the match), did it again in Miami against Kerber after losing the 2nd set but went on to win the match hence the dramaqueen comments since it happened in back to back matches). Did it again against Pliskova this week (went on to win the match).

She's only 19 but she's already making her mark on the tour with all these BS MTO's. Four this year alone, every time going on to win the match (they're might be more I forgot about?).

I don’t totally follow that accusation. If you call for a trainer are you then supposed to lose the match or stop trying?
She’s 19 and her game is such that she is up and down and grinds and grinds and then plays her way to a win based pretty much on endorphins.
And then she eventually, sometimes pays the consequences for playing her way through injuries and has to take time off.
It’s definitely dramatic in the sense that it’s entertaining and I love it but I don’t see how it’s suspect or cynical of her. She’s a fighter ...

One time, sure. Two times, maybe. Three times, hardly. Four times? In 8 months? BS.

She's not doing anything illegal, lord knows there's issues with dodgy MTO's but she did it twice in a number of games against Kerber and won both times. I can understand the comments.

She's not doing anything out of the ordinary, Kerber does the same.
