Bianca Andreescu commented on how her mindset is like after winning her maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open beating Serena Williams in a straight-set final. The Canadian player said: "I just try to go into every tournament like anything else.
I feel like US Open didn't even happen, which I think is a good thing. I'm starting off fresh. I think taking a couple weeks off after US Open really helped, as well. Take a break mentally and physically to regroup for this tournament.
Yeah, I'm glad I'm here. It's a new challenge, new circumstances, different environment. But I'm always up for the challenge, so I'm happy to be here." Reassessing her Asian swing, Andreescu added: "I think it's going pretty well.
I came here a week before, so I got used to the environment and the courts. I really enjoy playing on these courts. I think it really suits my game style. I have time to set up the points. Yeah, it's good. It's been good."
On her next opponent Jennifer Brady, Andreescu added: "I played her two or three times already. Nothing this year, though. I'm not sure. That was a while ago. I think we both improved a lot. I think it's going to be a good match.
She has a big serve, a big forehand, and she moves quite well. I just want to go out there, put on my best performance, be more positive, and hopefully I can get the win."
