The Womens Tennis Association is looking for the heir apparent to Serena Williams after beating her at the Rogers Cup in 33, and the rankings have vaulted up.
Nineteen-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu is now ranked 14th in the world after two tournament wins in 2019 and online sportsbooks have introduced betting props for if the teenager will win the Grand Slam stage (+600) or make it into the No. 1 ranking (+1000), either at the end of 2020.
Lets look into the meteoric growth of Andreescu and if she can make it into the mountaintop of this WTA:
The something that comes from the ATP and the WTA is the consistency of the top echelon of players. From the ATP, it is the same three men (Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer) that are competing at the Grand Slams and it should not shock you that those three have united to win every major since the start of 2017 (11 total).
But with the WTA, a fresh player/winner seems to emerge??out of each Grand Slam as well as the No. 1 position varies frequently. There were nine brand new Grand Slam winners with the WTA. That is why Bianca Andreescu creates an intriguing case to strike one of these two props. The Canadian won in Indian Wells back in March and will be currently coming off a win in her home country at the Rogers Cup in Toronto over Serena Williams to move into 14th in the WTA rankings.
However, outside of these two wins, she has been plagued with injuries to her back and shoulder, that has caused her to miss important amounts of time that year. She had to withdraw at the second round at the French Open, did not take part in the 2019 Australian Open and overlooked Wimbledon entirely because of her shoulder injury.
My only concern with these props is they do not feel exclusive. Gamers rarely get the No. 1 ranking on the WTA tour till they acquire a Grand Slam or string together a string of wins from the lesser tournaments. Andreescus recent injuries have limited her considerably and the ranking would probably be from grip, when she can not stay on the court.
As for thoseWinning a Grand Slam by conclusion of 2020 prop, I think bettors could get the very best value by simply betting on her to win the whole thing for each individual championship. She currently has +1400 odds to acquire the U.S. Open In September and also +1400 to win the Australian Open at January 2020. Hardcourts is where shes been the most successful in her career so I would start there for the value and see if she can be the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam title on the WTA circuit.
