“It Was Really Tough & I’m Not Going to Lie”: Bianca After Beating Sakkari
It would be one of the remarkable matches to both players’s career. And especially for the match-winner, Bianca Andreescu, who claimed twain sets in tiebreakers 7-6(7), 3-6, 7-6(4).
Besides, Andreescu marked her fourth consecutive three sets victory in Miami Gardens after a mid-night battle with No.23 seed from Greek. In earlier encounters, she dismissed Amanda Anisimova, Garbine Muguruza, and Sara SorribesTormo in three-setters.
“Against her(Sakkari), I had no choice but to run for everything that I could and just fight until the end because that’s what she was doing. She was really taking control of the points a lot of the time. It was really tough, I’m not going to lie,” Andreescu said after the match.
Bianca leads Maria Sakkari 1-0 in their head-to-head series. And she further added, “My whole game plan was to try and do that because I knew she was going to do that, and it could’ve been either of us winning. I’m just super happy that I pulled through.”
“Going To Be A Really Tough Match”: Bianca Andreescu on Facing Ashleigh Barty
Bidding for her fourth tour-level title, Andreescu will now lock horns with World No.1 and defending champion Ashleigh Barty for the first time in her professional career.
“I’ve wanted to play her for a long time now, so I’m super excited for that. I know it’s going to be a really tough match, but I’m really looking forward to it,” Andreescu confessed.
Needless to say, it will be another three-setter tough match for Bianca. Will we see how she lifts her first title after 18 months?
