Bianca Andreescu vs Marta Kostyuk – Match Predictions

Bianca Andreescu to Win

As Andreescu and Kostyuk prepare to face each other at the Citi Open, the Canadian undoubtedly carries the momentum from their previous encounter in Hua Hin earlier in the year. In that quarter-final showdown, Andreescu demonstrated her prowess on the hard courts and secured a decisive 2-0 victory over Kostyuk, starting off with a bagel in the first set. This prior success could serve as a significant advantage for Andreescu, who is back on her preferred hard surface and should emerge victorious in this highly-anticipated contest.

2-1 to Bianca Andreescu

This first-round duel is likely to be an intense battle, given their previous history on the tour. With Andreescu’s recent form indicating her prowess on the hard courts, she enters this matchup as the favourite. However, she has not been at her best and four of her last five matches have been three-set affairs. Kostyuk will take positives from this statistic but will have to be wary as Andreescu triumphed on three of these occasions. It is plausible that the contest may go the distance but the thrilling three-setter will see Andreescu’s experience on such occasions to get started on the right foot at Citi Open.
