Bianca Andreesu vs Alize Cornet
June 29, 2021 11:45 am EDT
Bianca Andreescu (5) meets Alize Cornet in the first round of the 2021 Championships on Tuesday, June 29th 2021.
Will Bianca Andreescu finally find some form as we have not seen her play her best in a very long time, or will Alize Cornet come out here, cause the upset, and show us that she should not be underestimated no matter who she comes up against?
Alize Cornet has been in good form on grass recently, definitely finding her best tennis on grass before entering Wimbledon. Alize is underrated in my opinion, and when she knows that her opponent does not believe she can win and takes her too lightly, she then brings out her best and shocks us. Here in London she will want to make a statement and a name for herself by causing the upset, but it is harder to cause an upset at a grand slam than at a smaller tournament which has less significance to a top 10 player like Bianca Andreescu.

Bianca Andreescu needs to find her game because it has been way too long since we have seen her perform and win titles at the top of the game. Bianca peaked in 2019 and this year she needs to get her game back before the beginning of the hard court season because if she enters the hard court season out of form, she will lose all of her points won as well as her US Open title run points. Bianca can defeat anyone on her day, but she will need to show us this again for me to believe it.
This is going to be the 2nd meeting between both players, with Alize having beaten Bianca just a few weeks ago on grass. Alize will enter this match thinking about how she was able to do that, but I am sure Bianca has been training a lot behind the scenes to ensure she is ready to get her revenge for that loss. It will be a tight match for sure as both players can win it, but Bianca should eventually edge it if she has made improvements over the last few weeks to get herself into the second round.
