Bianca Andreescu believes the best is yet to come after her US Open straight-set final win over Serena Williams. The Canadian player, speaking to Glory Magazine, said: “There’s always room for improvement. I’m going to keep working on my game.
I’ve accomplished a lot in this past year and now I believe I can do more — I want to create history”. On the keys of her breakthrough, Andreescu added: “The first time I actually thought I could do things in the sport was in 2013 because that was the first time after a match that I was asked for an autograph and to be interviewed, and I realized I enjoyed that.
I told myself then and there, I want to be at the top of my sport. Confidence is as important as anything in tennis — you get on the big stage and you either love it or you don’t, and when people were starting to know my name I felt comfortable.
I have no hesitation and that’s been a big part of my game”. Andreescu feels proud of overcoming injuries: "That’s what I’ve been working on throughout my whole career. Having to quit only toughens you up if you look at it right.
A setback is a test to stay optimistic and while I sat on my butt for three months, hoping I could carry my win into Miami, the French Open and Wimbledon, sadly I couldn’t, so during that time I looked at other aspects of my life and tried to improve”.
