Bianca Andreescu of course won in Indian Wells as wildcard and backed it up with a fourth round appearance in Miami before retiring injured against Anett Kontaveit and has not been seen on a tennis court since then over two months ago.
The Canadian has been suffering with a shoulder injury which meant she came into Roland Garros without a clay court game under her belt but that didn’t stop her.
She has quickly become a fan favourite, she is very comfortable in her game and despite a two month absence played a really good match and had to fight incredibly hard to see off an impressive Bouzkova who led by a set against the 18 year old.
The match got spread over two days following suspension of play last night for bad light and the two ladies continued where they left off once they got on court battling it out once again.
It was a high level from both players but the game of the Canadian just seemed a little bit more controlled and methodical with both her backhand and forehand really on form.
Bianca as ever is confident and says she is here to win and it would take something spectacular to win here but she’s created the spectacular before.
