Bianca Andreescu ready to embrace ‘dream’ and challenge for the US Open title
Bianca Andreescu is ready to embrace a ‘dream moment’ as she looks to carry her recent good form into the US Open.
The Canadian teen sensation won the Rogers Cup in Toronto earlier this month, but she has no intention of stopping there.
And where better than to continue her remarkable rise up the WTA rankings than Flushing Meadows, a venue that Andreescu admits holds a special significance for her.
“Coming from the win in Toronto, I’m feeling pretty confident,” Andreescu told reporters.
“I love playing on hard court. I’m here at the U.S. Open in New York, so this is a moment I have dreamed of.
“I’m really looking forward to whatever will happen these next two weeks.”
Andreescu, who is the 15th seed in the competition, will open her campaign against 17-year-old American wild card Katie Volynets on Tuesday.
She, though, has been warned not to allow complacency to creep into her game.
“We have to forget Toronto, and focus on what’s ahead — the Grand Slam in New York,” Andreescu’s coach Sylvain Bruneau said.
“The challenge in all this is that we went through all the stages so quickly — burned through them, really.
“We have to learn quickly, because the progression wasn’t gradual. She hasn’t had time to get used to her new status, to manage expectations.
“We have to be careful not to stray from the formula that’s worked well until now.
“But as I tell her all the time, you can talk about it all you want. But there’s nothing like living it.”
