Bianca Andreescu: 'I felt for Serena Williams so much'

In an interview as quoted by ESPN, Bianca Andreescu looked back to her Rogers Cup final win by retirement against Serena Williams. The Canadian player said: "Players have to go through that, and Serena has been through that so many times and she knows when to push it and when to just stop, and unfortunately that was a day she just had to stop.

But, I felt for her so much. I just wanted to give her a hug, and I told her, 'You're a beast, you're going to bounce back quickly.' I am sure she is going to do well at the US Open. And who knows? Maybe I can play her again."

On what her expectations were heading into the Rogers Cup, Andreescu added: "I was just really happy to be back on court because I didn't want to take advantage. When you're off for so long, all you want to do is be back on court and be playing."

Andreescu feels confident ahead of the fourth and last calendar Grand Slam of the season: "I think I can do big things at the US Open," she assured.
