What’s in the news
It’s been quite a year for Bianca Andreescu as she became the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam, finished the year as the world No 5 and was named her country’s athlete of the year.

No wonder Annabel Croft is impressed and the Amazon Prime pundit likened her to Roger Federer in a column on Tennishead.net.

“Bianca Andreescu is quite possibly the most talented female player I have ever seen in terms of her overall game. Her tennis is mesmerising,” she wrote.

“I loved watching her befuddle so many opponents this year with her imaginative play, her flair and her artistry. With the way she moves around the court and sets up her shots, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that the US Open champion feels like a female version of Roger Federer.”

Elina Svitolina has added former Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis to her coaching team and WTAtennis.com has the full story for you.
