Andreescu could have been intimidated by Williams, but she wasn't - Coach

Bianca Andreescu's coach Sylvain Bruneau praised the Canadian player for her US Open final win over Serena Williams. Bruneau is proud for how Andreescu dealt with the whole environment from a mental point of view. "She played mostly fearless for a big part of the match.

A big, big part of the match. She could have been a little bit intimidated for many reasons. Serena, the stadium, the world is watching", said Bruneau. Andreescu said: “I don’t think I’ve lost a match since March, so my confidence is skyrocketing right now.

I just don’t want to take anything for granted because there’s going to be weeks where you’re going to lose, so right now I’m just on cloud nine and hopefully, I can just keep the momentum going. Also, I mean, it’s part of life going through situations like that.

It’s not always going to be butterflies and rainbows, so I just tried to embrace it as much as I could. I tried to learn different things about myself and just about how I can get better as a player and as a person, and I really believed that there were going to be good times ahead because I think when you believe in that then all those tough times are worth it”. Andreescu, if healthy, will now head into the Asian swing being very confident.
