Kerber vs Andreescu (By: Stanioooo)
Final in Indian Wells between Angelique Kerber and Bianca Andreescu.
That looks like a battle of the experience against the will of an youngster who plays her first big final. Everyone knows about the achievements Kerber has in her career, while Andreescu is looking like a future start of tennis, but she is still only 18 years old and I am not sure if she will succeed to hold her nerves during the final. It's true that's her third during 2019 after she lost in Auckland against Goerges, while in Newport she won the title against Pegula. None of these tournaments can not be compared to the one in Indian Wells, so that I expect Bianca to show nerves in the decisive moments of this final against Kerber.
Kerber's results during 2019 are average without anything big as achievement, but when she reaches a final from this cathegory, she is going to be the favourite, except one or two opponents like Serena Williams and Simona Halep. Bianca Andreescu is climbing in the ranking and I hope she will shine brighter than Bouchard or Ostapenko who are in obvious downfall.
Maybe most of you remember how many times I bet on her and her matches in Auckland and I was right that maybe her stamina in the final against Goerges will not be enough- if she didn't win in straight sets, the third one can turn into disaster and it happened. I saw a little bit tiredness in her display against Svitolina in the SF, especially in the third set and Kerber is a player who can punish that very badly with her oustandingly good defense making Andreescu to run and hit hard during the first set/ set and a half and then to finish her opponent. What I expect in this match is to see three sets, where Andreescu will try to be equal to Kerber, but I doubt it will last for more than set and a half, max two sets. If it goes to a third, Kerber will be the winner almost for sure. I didn't expect Kerber to beat Bencic in the SFs as the Swiss was in tremendiously good form, but she did it quite easy in straight sets.
I will be really shocked if Andreescu succeeds to take the trophy in Indian Wells tonight. She still has a lot to learn, but the talent is obvious. Still there is no way to go against Kerber here as I saw what happened with Andreescu in Auckland and her strenght has gone during the last set. Angie is a player who has the weapon to use that making her opponent to run, run and once again to run. I like Bianca, but I don't think it's still her time to grab a big trophy like this.
