Bianca Andreescu Takes Angelique Kerber To Social Media As War Of Words Continues

Canada’s new sensation, Bianca Andreescu won her second consecutive match against the multiple-time Grand Slam champion, Angelique Kerber in the third round of Miami Open 2019. Andreescu’s win was followed by a contentious handshake on the net. Bianca Andreescu took a medical timeout and received treatment for her shoulder in the middle of her match and that persuaded Kerber to pronounce her as “biggest drama queen ever”.

In the very next match against the Estonian, Anett Kontaveit, she retired from it pertaining to a shoulder injury. The Ontario-native, Bianca Andreescu posted a story on her Instagram account and the photograph was followed by an empty box stating, “Caption This”.

The World Number 24 WTA player, Bianca Andreescu was mocked by her Instagram followers. There were texts from her fans which read, “I’m not the drama queen, you are,” to which she replied, “Ha.” “Was that enough drama for you?”, she responded, “Hahahaha”. “There’s the trophy you didn’t win, Angie,” Bianca Andreescu took a bait, “So many of these lmaoooo.”

With the changing times, the inception of social media has certainly brought the fans and players closer to each other. With that, the game to tennis has started receiving significant intentness towards the squabbles which take place in the midst of the matches or in the lives of the players rather than the beautiful game.

The melodrama between the two WTA women was in the heat of the moment and certainly captured unusual attention amongst the tennis followers. The social media needlessly escalated the heed in the quarrel. Besides the game’s tactics and performance of players, these dissensions are coming more into the limelight.

The athletes have a tough time training, every single day of their careers and they put themselves out to win matches on the circuit. The medical timeout by Bianca Andreescu against Kerber was due to her shoulder soars and her muscles were brutally beating. It is reasonable to call out for a timeout during such conditions and making a fuss out of it makes no sense.

In general, the tennis professionals retire from their matches when an inevitable situation bounces upon them and indeed, it is disappointing for all tennis players to carry such an action. Andreescu’s retirement in the pre-quarters of the Miami Open was due to the same reason and which emphatically effected her match winning-streak of number ten.

These parameters need to put into consideration before the public makes a mountain out of a mole-hill. Kerber instinctively blabbered something out of her frustration due to the loss, however, in this case, it is futile to add fuel to that fire.
