Bianca Andreescu v Alize Cornet: Preview
US Open 2019 winner Bianca Andreescu played two grass-court tournaments before the Wimbledon Championships 2021 and didn’t enjoy a great run in either one of them. Interestingly, she lost to Alize Cornet in the very first round of the WTA Berlin 2021 and then suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Anett Kontaveit at the Eastbourne International 2021.
On the other side, Alize Cornet reached the semis of the WTA Berlin 2021. However, Belinda Bencic stunned her there and crushed her in straight sets. After that, she took part at the Bad Homburg Open 2021 where she lost to Victoria Azarenka in a close battle.
After defeating Andreescu on grass this season, Cornet surely knows what she needs to do to beat her yet again. However, the Canadian star will also be ready with answers to respond to the powerful forehands of the Frenchwoman this time.
Bianca Andreescu v Alize Cornet: Head-to-Head
Their only face-off was witnessed about two weeks back when Cornet thrashed Andresscu in straight sets. It took place on grass at the WTA Berlin 2021 and as a result, Cornet lead the head-to-head battle 1-0 at the moment.
Bianca Andreescu v Alize Cornet: Prediction
Even though Andreescu is not enjoying some great form lately, it’ll be her who will begin as the favorite before the match. She has the experience of playing big matches at Grand Slams and knows how to shift the momentum.
However, one can’t neglect Cornet, especially after her recent triumph over Andreescu. She just needs to serve in the right areas and target the Canadian’s backhand in order to succeed in the match.
Final Prediction: Bianca Andreescu to win in three sets
