Angelique Kerber Calls Bianca Andreescu ‘Drama Queen’

October 22, 2019


For the second straight time in a row, Angelique
Kerber and Bianca Andreescu have played against each other in a tournament as after their
epic Indian Wells final which the latter won, the two faced off this morning in the Miami
Open third round. Angie started the match off strong breaking
Bianca off the bat, but Bibi would then win the next 10 out of 13 games to go up 64 41. Kerber would then elevate her game winning
the next 5 games of the set taking it 6-4. At 2-1 in the third set, Bianca took her third
medical time out of the match which seemed to prove to be effective as she would win
the set and the match 64 46 61. Now the match took another turn, even after
its conclusion as when the two went up to the net to shake hands, Angie said this,: If you couldn’t hear that Kerber said “You’re
the biggest drama queen ever” to Andreescu and Bianca didn’t even respond she kept
walking shook the umpire’s hand and acknowledged the crowd. This could’ve been because she might not
have heard what she said. Now while many were confused why Angie would
say something like this after the match, the 3 medical time outs Bianca took, especially
the last one could’ve frustrated Kerber and she probably thought she was faking it. Angie was probably also annoyed at Bibi even
before the match started as in their Indian Wells final, Bianca kept launching balls at
the German which hit her a few times obviously frustrating her. In the handshake after that match though,
I expected a not-so-friendly handshake, but the two actually had a nice embrace. To break it down and be as blunt as possible,
the main reason Angelique said these things to Andreescu was that she was frustrated and
upset she lost two the same player twice, and they were both matches she could’ve
won. It was also late after this match which could’ve
added fuel to the fire as well. Now while Im sure these factors had a lot
to do with this, I believe Angie was in the wrong by saying what she said. Bianca is only 18 years old and has played
a lot of tennis in the past two weeks. She basically won a grand slam last week when
she won Indian Wells as she had to win 7 matches to get the title. Then to travel to Miami and play your first
round match after not even 5 days is a lot to handle. Then for Andreescu to come back 4-6 1-5 down
in her first round match against Begu to be victorious is a tremendous achievement on
its own. When you take all of these things into consideration,
you shouldn’t be mad at someone for taking a Medical Time Out. Kerber has been critical of players having
MTOs in crucial points of the match, as she gave Makarova the same treatment as the Czech
too took a pause in the game which Angie clearly didn’t appreciate. If these feelings of animosity come from Bibi
hitting her last week, then now is not the time for scolding someone about it. Angie probably didn’t say anything to Bibi
because she realized the big moment the teen was having, but that does not mean you can
bring your hateful feelings into another setting. Either express them at the appropriate setting
or let them dissipate and don’t bring them out at all. Thats all for todays breaking tennis news. Do you believe Kerber was right in dissing
Andreescu or do you think she was just salty because she lost. Leave your thoughts in the comment section

    I think for Kerber it was a combination of everything that lead her to say that. For sure angie is disappointed that she lost, but in general, Angie is someone who loses with pride and who learns from defeats. And then Angie definitely was annoyed by the several Medical Timeouts (which were probably tactical to get kerber out of rhythm), and always complaining even when Andreescu was 5:1 up in the 3rd. Kerber probably wished a bit more respect and sportsmanship from Andreescu's side

    A tennis player must be always prepared to encounter theses kind of scenarios, medical timeouts, an opponent taking too long to serve or any delays or distractions that may occur during the game. As long as these timeouts, delays are within the rules of the game, a player has a right through these rules. In any sport, mind game is always involved. Players will do anything to defeat an opponent, delay, annoy, distract an opponent that will adversely affect their game and eventually lose. A great player should be able to control his nerves and emotions and overcome these tactics. I can imagine Kerber’s frustration in her loss but her reaction during the net handshake is unsportsmanlike. You continued playing and finished the game, you lost, suck it up! That’s how a true professional and seasoned player should be.

    Players no win matches because "medical time". That´s an excuse. Andrescu is not a better player because she takes 5 or 10 mins out the match. It´s the same time for both. The real personality comes with the angry. I don´t know is this Kerber´s reaction is good or bad, but of course, without any doubt, not elegant.

    I agree she is a drama queen. Spoiled brat looking for attention. Her new found fame is the last thing she needed. It will only fuel her baby like antics. Her coach is also played like a piano. Poor guy. As soon as her 15 min of fame is over he’ll be dropped like a hot potato. This kid has been stroked all her life. She needs to grow up.

    Kerber needs to get out of her bubble of rightousness…she has a habit of being condensending towards players using their rights for med attention. Funny enough after she loses her matches. Instead of attacking an 18 Yr old rising tennis star – 31W / 3L since Jan 19, she should bring up her concerns with those who put the regulations in place. Bianca cimented her statement by showing her talent not once but twice within a week, we get it Angie your EGO is ruffled but keep focusing on your own great talent! If not you'll become the Drama Queen 😉

    I was hoping for a Kerber revenge win, but at the same time am amazed by adreescu's game. Kerber was totally flustered, flabbergasted and frustrated by the game and determination that adreescu brings.
    Kerber was wrong if she judged the injury timeouts as delay tactics…the young 18 year old has to be hurting and only her youth and energy is bringing her through for these wins.
    Although andreescus does some yelling and hitting balls after the point, all that definitely worked in her favor, because although Kerber can be icy at the net, i don't think the tennis world witnessed Kerber so outright angry, all that to say, Kerber was wrong.

    Kerber is an entitled spoiled athlete. If you can’t deal with extended medical or bathroom breaks you are not mentally fit. A great athlete should not be bothered by any of that. That’s being a cry baby. Besides, no one has the right to judge another athlete if they say they are injured, not the fans and not the opponent. These rich tennis player are prima donnas, always worrying about what their opponent does “wrong”. Grow up Kerber, stop whining because an 18 year old whipped your butt! 😂 Kerber should actually be fined for her remark, she was completely wrong.

I watched that match a few years ago and I lost total respect for Kerber. She clearly cheated in that match and I haven't liked her since. This video just goes on to further showcase her nastiness and lack of character. I root for her to lose in every match she plays.

  • Reply Chris Jones March 25, 2019 at 1:04 pm

    Kerber was wrong but this Tennis – people get frustrated. It is not only Serena and most of the American crew bar Stephens and Keys that show frustration in a bad way. Taking medical breaks is frustrating; Maria Sharapova has had a few rants too. Andreescu is obvious tired and understandable for an 18 year-old playing some many matches and big emotional ones too. She was tired in the Finals at Indian Wells too and was slicing more, using mood ball and going for it as well; that must be so frustrating for Kerber. Is she really that badly injured? I actually do not think to but she is not yet a drama queen; one in the making though with the shrieks and come on and so on…

    She should have lost against Begu and was looking tired and injured there too… The medical time out is being exploited – if you are not fit, then you should forfeit; simple. Maybe a limit to 1 per match

    Kerber was dead-on correct. This mouth-breathing teenager towels off after EVERY SINGLE POINT. Folks, that's just plain ridiculous. To have ball kids fetching towels on EVERY SINGLE POINT is absurd. The pro tennis associations need to put an end to the towel nonsense. I was a ball boy in the mid 1980s and I never, not even once, gave a towel to a player. Why does Andreescu do this? Because she is a drama queen. Why does she moan to her coach? She's a drama queen. Why does she take innumerable injury timeouts? She's a drama queen. She's a hell of a tennis player, but she is a mouth-breathing drama queen.

  • Reply Elmo Blatch June 24, 2019 at 9:58 pm

    You notice how hard Bianca was breathing? You notice that she has a few extra pounds? It is totally obvious that she took the multiple injury timeouts to CATCH HER BREATH. She's only 18 and she does not have the endurance, so she is taking advantage of the rules unfairly.

    As much as I really like Angie, I don't think it was a helpful thing to say to Bianca and I think it's a combination of frustration and annoyance that she lost and just couldn't control herself saying. But everything we say and do has consequences and considering Bianca is only 18 I don't think it was a wise move on Kerber's part being the elder but hopefully she learns from it. Even the champions make mistakes they need to learn from and I don't think people should keep punishing Angie for by constantly bringing it up. It's said, it's done and we all move on.
