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.
