Bianca Andreescu was all about Anas Jaber on Thursday night. After removing the first set in the tiebreak, 7-6 (5), she lost the next two sets 6-4, 6-1.

The first five matches of the Round of 16 saw fierce rivalry, and after that, the two rivals had moments. Tunisian is a bit more than Canadian.

But Jaber served at 5-4, could not finish the work, and made some mistakes.

Then, in the next match, Andreescu cleared two break balls and advanced 6-5.

The round was decided in a tiebreak, with the Canadian leading 6-3. At 6-4, she narrowly missed a shot before closing the books on the next point.

Andreescu won only two points more than Jaber (46-44) in this first set. The two are far from the tiebreak.

Both players provided an impressive variety of shots. We know Andreescu, but Jabeur also showed off his photo. We’ve seen a variety of bushings, in particular.

Tunisian Anas Jaber, 26, 13 years oldNS classifier and 22NS The world – a career – has had an excellent season. She got her hands on the first title and her 36 wins were only eclipsed by Aryna Sabalenka’s 37 wins.

Caught Crowd And Great Jerk

During the break, Bianca Andreescu requested medical leave and received treatment on her big toe.

Then in the second half, the Tunisian broke the bank… before he returned the favor to the Canadian for a double foul.

Spectators of Tunisian descent were already present from the start, but at this point in the match the intensity of their reactions led to an escalation with the Canadian fans. And despite the crowd being limited to 5,000 fans, the atmosphere turned electric. To the point of extracting smiles from Jaber in the direction of the stands.

A few minutes later, in the 3-2 match with Jabeur with Andreescu on duty, the rain immediately dampened the mood.

The match was stopped for sixty minutes. The shouts of the fans resumed as soon as the players returned.

Bianca Andreescu slipped and slid onto the wet grass.

We had the impression that we see Andreescu for 2019 sometimes, amazing in defence, for example.

Then, at 4-3 Jaber, the Canadian slipped past a long distance and dragged the inside of her left foot across the field, causing the player to scream in pain. On the floor, Andreescu, emotionally, nodded his head.

The worst seemed possible, given the many injuries she had sustained in recent years.

But after another medical hiatus, a big toe bandage on her left foot, she resumed the game and tied the game 4-4. Earn a shout at every point. It often appears that he suffers in between.

At 5-4 in favor of Jabeur, another delay caused by rain, but only ten minutes this time.

At the start of the second half, the Tunisian broke to win the set 6-4.

After two rounds, Jaber excels 25-14 in the side of winning shots.

One way ends

Obviously, in her case, Bianca Andreescu would need to win two sets.

In the blink of an eye, the score was 3-0 Jaber. Then 6-1. This was the end of the 2 .NS classified, 8NS World Champion and Defender Champion.

The Canadian won only 14 out of 40 points in this round.

The Tunisian concluded the duel with 9 aces and won 82% of the points with her first serve points in play.

The four former champions of the tournament based in Montreal – Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Elena Svitolina and Bianca Andreescu – have been disqualified.

Open National Bank will crown a new one.
