Bianca Andreescu hasn’t been in the best of forms lately. After getting knocked out in the round of 16s at the US Open, the Canadian tennis star featured in the Chicago Fall Tennis Classic where she was handed an astonishing defeat by Shelby Rogers.

Bianca was completely outplayed by Shelby who ended up winning the contest in straight sets. Needless to say, Andreescu would be itching to make a strong comeback on the court. On the other hand, Alsion Riske would be riding high on confidence after her first-round victory.

Riske thrashed Taiwanese tennis star Liang En-shuo in straight sets in her opening round. Riske dominated the proceedings right from the start and gave En-shuo absolutely no chance of making a comeback. However, now Riske has a tough task ahead of her in the name of Bianca Andreescu.

Alison Riske started off nicely at Indian Wells. Moreover, she made her way into the finals at the WTA Slovenia Open which would have given her a lot of confidence. However, her run at the BNP Paribas Open might come to an in the second round as Bianca Andreescu will walk into the encounter as a firm favorite.

Prediction: Bianca Andreescu to win in straight sets.
