Bianca Andreescu believes she is similar to Serena Williams. The Canadian player said: "I think there are some similarities. We like to keep the points short with our aggressive game style. We like to use our serve to our advantage.
I think we fight really, really hard. But at the same time I want to make a name for myself. I know I have a different game style than many players on the tour right now. It's been working really, really well. It's been working to my advantage.
I just want to keep improving it." Recalling last year's US Open final between Naomi Osaka and Serena, Andreescu said: "I don't completely remember what happened. I actually didn't watch that final. Yeah, I don't think I watched that final.
I actually just watched some highlights this morning so I know what to expect a little bit. I know Naomi played a really good match. I kind of tried to just get to that level today." Andreescu felt emotional before the match: "I've been dreaming of this moment for the longest time.
Like I said after I won the Orange Bowl, a couple months after, I really believed that I could be at this stage. Since then, honestly I've been visualizing it almost every single day. For it to become a reality is just so crazy. I guess these visualizations really, really work."
