We will have a confrontation of experience and power, against youth, excitement and fast movement on court with a combination of drop shots. Very interesting, if a talented canadian with a crazy support for the home audience to withstand the pressure of the eminent rival and to provide decent resistance to the tennis legend that is now not unbeatable.
- Serena Williams
- Bianca Andreescu
- The coefficients and forecast
The American has a perfect record of winning finals in this tournament. Three times Serena participated in the decisive match for the title in 2001, 2011 and 2013 years and always went out of him in the role of the winner. The last confrontation ended in two sets, without giving the opponent absolutely no chance.
This season Williams will play in the second finals on all surfaces and the first on hard. American frankly ruined the fight for the title at Wimbledon, losing outright to Romanian Simona Halep 2-6, 2-6.
Therefore, after the failures realized, never played until this tournament, having arrived in Toronto in the status of one of the main favorites. Here SW first had real problems in the match of 1/8 final against the Russians Alexandrova, though, and won in two sets 7-5, 6-4, but had to catch up on the account. Next was a confident win over Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-4 and the first 3 sitovy match. Czech Bouzkova in the semi-finals started the match very relaxed, having Serena 1-6. But the experience helped Williams to turn the tide of the emerging unsuccessful meetings, stopping the next two sets with identical score of 6-3.
19-year-old canadian, regardless of the result of this match next Monday will update its own record in the world rankings, debuting in the top 20. And very pleased that this success Andreescu will do after the home tournament, which still has a good chance, given the level display of tennis to win the second major trophy this season.
First Bianca won sensationally in Indian wells, where he first showed his full potential, scoring alternately cool the victory over Cibulkova, Mugurusi, Svitolina and Kerber.
For this tournament, the canadian game came after a pause of more than two months due to injury at the start of the “Roland Garros”, which prevented play on the grass. Grid Andreescu fought very hard, winning four of five matches in three sets. Only in the semifinals, the canadian was able to put the two parties in the confrontation with the Kenin, and then miraculously managed to do it.
The coefficients and forecast
See very careful of the quotes in this final confrontation. It is clear that bookmakers are a favorite of Williams, Jr., putting on a win ratio of 1.65, the Andreescu is 2.43. Believe, quotes objectively reflect the balance of forces in this pair today based on the results of players in the current season, games manners and factor of a home tournament for the Canadians.
As for me, we will have a very intriguing and dramatic match, in which to determine the winner will need the maximum number of sets.
