Ups, downs, then ups, and heavy falls again. This could be summed up as the last two and a half years of Bianca Andreescu, former world number 4, who confessed in an interview with the WTA's official website that she has had a really hard time humanly speaking.

During her in-depth talk granted to the microphones of the WTA's official website, in which she eviscerated her malaise experienced over the past two and a half years, Bianca Andreescu revealed her decision, which she made by helping herself to some spiritual activities in Costa Rica such as yoga and exploring nature.

"I realized that I love the sport and that I want to continue my career, not so much to win big titles, but to contribute to a better world. My tool to achieve this goal is tennis.

I feel I have taken enough time off. I miss that fire I feel when I compete, and now I can put into practice many of the things I have learned" , said the Canadian, who later admitted that she fell prey to media pressure.

"I was constantly under stress and I realized that I couldn't go on like that, it wasn't healthy. Even though I won, I was very hard on myself".
