Danish tennis superstar, Caroline Wozniacki has made it through to the third round of the 2019 WTA US Open. At this stage of the tournament, Wozniacki will compete against Bianca Andreescu for a spot in the final 16.
Bianca Andreescu has been in outstanding form in 2019 and she has established herself as a future superstar of the tennis world. Andreescu last played at the Rogers Cup where she won the title. During the Rogers Cup, Bianca Andreescu defeated elite players like Karolina Pliskova and Kiki Bertens. Bianca Andreescu seems to have carried her form into the US Open as she has looked very impressive in this tournament. Andreescu won her previous match in straight sets as she defeated Kirsten Flipkens from Belgium. During the win, Bianca Andreescu impressed with her receiving as she won 44% of her receiving points which allowed her to win 4 return games. The serving was also impressive from Bianca Andreescu as she won 90% of her service games. Despite her form, this is expected to be a tough match for Andreescu as she is playing against an elite opponent.
Looking at Caroline Wozniacki, the Danish superstar seems to be finding some good form as she displayed in her previous match. In the previous round, Wozniacki defeated Danielle Rose Collins in 3 sets. Wozniacki lost the opening set but she showed great determination to win the final 2 sets and the match. During the win, Caroline Wozniacki won 87% of her service games and 3 return games. This is expected to be a challenging match for Wozniacki but she is a much greater experience of playing at Grand Slams and that should give her an advantage.
Caroline Wozniacki and Bianca Andreescu have played each other once in the past. The match was played earlier in the season at Auckland where Bianca Andreescu won in straight sets.
Despite her current form, I see Bianca Andreescu losing this match. Andreescu has never made it this far at a Grand Slam and I see her lacking the experience needed to win these kinds of fixtures. Caroline Wozniacki seems to be finding some decent form and she has the advantage of experience as she has won a Grand Slam in the past. This should be a close match but I see Wozniacki having enough to eliminate Andreescu.
