Having Serena Williams on the other side of the court is stressful: Bruneau

In an interview with Sportsnet, Bianca Andreescu's coach Sylvain Bruneau spoke of the Canadian player's US Open final win over Serena Williams. Bruneau said: “I knew Bianca was going to keep doing her things and keep doing things the right way, but there’s also, as you mentioned, Serena Williams on the other side of the net.

She’s a legend so she has her say in how this match will go. So that was for sure a bit stressful”. On Andreescu's mentality, he added: "She’s a very grounded individual, so are her parents and the team around her.

She needs to stay in business and I think she will. I think she will, because we’ve already discussed this, she’s prepared for it and I think she’s going to make the right decisions." On Andreescu's earnings, Downey said: "She may have made $1.3 million at Indian Wells and she made $600,000 in Toronto.

But no. We have a commitment. And the reason being is we want her to be world No. 1. We want her to win more slams. It's a good investment." Speaking of her win over Williams, Bianca Andreescu said: "I just fought until the end.

I know she came back in the second set, as expected. That’s why she’s a true legend of this sport. Having that opportunity to play against her, above all, she’s just a kind person. So I’m really grateful for that experience”.
