Bianca Andreescu v Tamara Zidansek Head to Head
No previous matches have been played between these players before this.
Andreescu Hoping Injuries Stay Away
When she is fit, Andreescu looks to be on the top of her game and has a record that would make most envious. Unfortunately for her, she hasn’t played a lot of tennis.
Since winning the US Open in 2019, Andreescu participated in six matches that year and a further 14 this season. The whole of 2020 and a few pockets of this year have been without tennis for the Canadian number one.
And in the time she did feature on court, Andreescu added a WTA 1000 final to her tally – getting there in Miami before falling to Ash Barty – and was a semifinalist at the Phillip Island Trophy in Melbourne.
Andreescu enters this year’s French Open having played and won a couple of rounds at the Strasbourg Open – the only two matches on clay for her. She withdrew from the tournament after that citing abdominal pain.
Having never reached the third round at Roland-Garros before this, Andreescu will have to make do with whatever little preparation she has had so far on clay. Will that be enough for the world number seven to challenge some of the top players though?
Zidansek’s Had a WTA Final Appearance on Clay in 2021
Ranked 85th in the world, Zidansek began the season on bit of a high with a third round appearance at the Abu Dhabi Open, fell away a little in the rest of the hard court swing but has then recovered on clay.
The Slovenian kick-started her clay swing in Bogota, where she stormed into the final without dropping a set. And playing the local teenager, Maria Camila Osorio Serrano in the title-decider, Zidansek even took the first set off her before falling in three.
Zidansek, who has already won two clay court titles, albeit at WTA $125k events, narrowly missed adding her first at the highest WTA level but that result would have definitely been a shot in her arm.
As a qualifier, she reached the second round in Madrid while defeating Sloane Stephens in the Rome qualifiers.
Can she now put up a strong showing against Andreescu?
Andreescu v Zidansek Prediction and Tip
Interesting to note it’s not all one-way traffic at this one. While Andreescu does start off a favourite, she is 4/6 to win it while Zidansek is only marginally behind at 11/10. Backing the Canadian to come through in three.
