could not Beatriz Haddad Maia in the second round of the US Open in the early hours of Thursday (1). The Brazilian lost to Canadian Bianca Andreescu, champion of the tournament in 2019, by 2 sets to 0, with partials of 6/2 and 6/4 in 1h35 of play. Eliminated in the singles, Bia turns her attention to doubles, where she will partner with Kazakh Anna Danilina in New York.

How was the game

Inspired, Andreescu made a great first set with just three unforced errors. The Canadian decided to play a game full of variations, constantly changing the height, weight and direction of the ball. The tactic had an effect in the first game: Bia ended up broken and managed to have only one break-point chance in the entire set. With no gaps, Bianca would still score one more break in the final game to win the partial by 6/2.

In the second set, Andreescu did not keep the same pace. More erratic in the exchange of balls in the background, the game became more even, with Bia excelling in service returns. However, the Brazilian had two chances to break in the fourth game, and two more in the sixth. In both, the Canadian was saved. Bianca gets a break, imposes good services in the final stretch and secures the victory by 6/4.

Bia debuts in doubles this Thursday (1)

Despite the elimination, the Brazilian will return to the US Open court this Thursday (1). Alongside Danilina, the duo enters as the number 8 seed of the tournament. The two compete in the first round against the Serbian Aleksandra Krunic and the Polish Magda Linette. If they win, they will face Spain’s Aliona Bolsova and Norway’s Ulrikke Eikeri in the next round.
