Amanda Anisimova is about to play her second round match at the Miami Open against the world no. 19 Anett Kontaveit.
Ranked no.73, the American has recorded a 7-3 win-loss record in 2019. Amanda shined in Auckland where she reached the quarters and at the Australian Open where she lost in the 4th round to Petra Kvitova that was the runner-up of the tournament.
The 18-year-old had to retire in the 1st round in Acapulco while she was playing against Varvara Flink and she lost in the 2nd round in Indian Wells to Elise Mertens 6-4 6-2.
