Bianca Andreescu’s career is one to follow as one of the most talented younger players to come through after her 2019 US Open title win. All the information on Bianca Andreescu’s racquet along with its specifications and modifications if any.
Canada’s Andreescu began her career in 2015 but it was in 2019 that her career took a sudden spurt.
Having only tasted success at the lower circuit, with title wins on the ITF circuit between 2016 and 2018, Andreescu clinched the Newport Beach Open as her maiden tournament victory in 2019.
For a player who had played almost exclusively on the ITF circuit the year prior, having failed to qualify for the main draw of any of the Grand Slams either, Andreescu turned things around with that Newport Beach title in spectacular manner.
It started with the Auckland Open finals appearance as a qualifier, with wins over Caroline Wozniacki and Venus Williams in that competition before a loss at the hands of Julia Goerges.
Qualifying for the Australian Open following that, she made the second round before her maiden title. A semifinal at the Acapulco Open followed soon after, and then wins over Wang Qiang, Garbine Muguruza, Elina Svitolina and Angelique Kerber gave her the Indian Wells Open title.
For a player who had ended the previous season ranked 152nd in the world, winning the Indian Wells Open propelled her confidence to another level.
Beating Kerber again and taking the scalp of Sofia Kenin on her way, a fourth round at Miami Open, and another title victory at the Rogers Cup. In turn, Andreescu had registered her seventh successive win over a top-10 player having never lost to one!
Andreescu, who had by now moved to 14th in the world, began the US Open as the 15th seed and it was very clear to everyone how special she is as the Canadian showed no signs of any nerves.
Steamrolling her opponents, Andreescu made it to the quarterfinal without too many worries, then overcame Elise Mertens, Belinda Bencic and Serena Williams to lift her maiden Grand Slam title. Against the legend and multiple Grand Slam winner Serena, Andreescu showed irresistible form to crush her in straight sets.
Andreescu’s playing style resembles Simona Halep’s to a degree (check Halep’s racquet here) and one of her strongest points is the amount of power in her groundstrokes.
The Canadian has been compared with having the variety that Martina Hingis had in her game but the extra power makes her difficult to beat, especially with those booming forehands to endure for the opponents.
