Tennis Talk – October 2019

Canadian phenom Bianca Andreescu’s impressive 17-match win streak unfortunately came to an end this month against a formidable foe.

After a legendary run to the 2019 US Open singles title this summer, Andreescu fell to the 21 year-old Naomi Osaka in the quarterfinals at the China Open. It was the match tennis fans across the globe were waiting to see, and in the end the former world No. 1 (and 2018 US Open champ) took down the Canadian teen in three tightly contested sets.

It was Andreescu’s first loss to a top-10 opponent in nine matches, and she will look to finish the season strong at the WTA Finals beginning on October 27. We can’t wait to see both Osaka and Andreescu continue to move the needle in women’s tennis and inspire the next generation of players across the tennis world.
