The 18-year-old from Canada is one of the most exciting prospects in tennis not only for her results but also for the variation she uses during her matches. Currently ranked no.60, Bianca impressed in Indian Wells especially for her last 2 performances after she demolished Garbine Muguruza 6-0 6-1 and she defeated Elina Svitolina in an epic semifinal 6-3 2-6 6-4. If Bianca wins the title in the desert she will be ranked 24, otherwise she will still go 27 places up in the rankings to be the new world no.33.
Angelique is finally having a deep run in 2019. The former world no.1 recorded 3 important wins after she defeated Aryna Sabalenka in the 4th round 6-1 4-6 6-4, Venus Williams 7-6 (3) 6-3, and an in-form Belinda Bencic 6-4 6-2.
H2H Bianca Andreescu vs. Angelique Kerber
There is no head to head record between Bianca Andreescu and Angelique Kerber since they have never played each other so far.
Who is the favorite?
On paper, Kerber is the favorite to win the title. However, Andreescu has already demonstrated that if she is fully fit she can easily beat everyone. The young Canadian struggled from a physical point of view at the end of her semifinal against Elina Svitolina. However, Bianca had a full day to recover. If she is at her 100%, she has a shot at pulling another great upset.
