Bianca Andreescu on playing alongside Nick Kyrgios: The chemistry was great

2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu enjoyed playing mixed doubles with Nick Kyrgios as she felt their chemistry was great during their match at the World Tennis League in Dubai. Andreescu and Kyrgios, representing the Kites team in the inaugural World Tennis League, defeated Eugenie Bouchard and Holger Rune 6-2 6-3.

“I thought the chemistry was great from the start. We’re both pretty outgoing people, so I thought we were going to bring a lot of energy and we played really well. I think we both have good hands. I think it’s rubbing off on me a bit on the serve and on the volleys, so hopefully we can keep it up,» Andreescu said after the match.

How Andreescu, Kyrgios beat Bouchard, Rune

The first break points of the match were seen in the third game, when Bouchard and Rune had three consecutive break points. Faced with three break points in a row, Andreescu and Kyrgios didn’t panic as they saved all three break chances to move up 2-1.

Bouchard and Rune paid the price for not noticing their break chances as Andreescu and Kyrgios earned the first break of the match in the fourth game to take a 3-1 lead. In the eighth game, with Bouchard and Rune serving to stay in the first set, Andreescu and Kyrgios hit their second break to win the opening set.

After winning the first set, Andreescu and Kyrgios had the first break point of the second set in the sixth game, but didn’t realize it when Bouchard and Rune tied the set at three games apiece. Andreescu and Kyrgios might not have claimed a break in game six, but they managed to break Bouchard and Rune in game eight to take a 5-3 lead.

In the ninth game, Andreescu and Kyrgios routinely served for the match. Despite Andreescu and Kyrgios winning the opening match, the Kites team lost to the Eagles team. Whether Andreescu and Kyrgios can get more wins as a duo remains to be seen.
