‘I think I’ll have a good chance’ – Ambitious Bianca Andreescu reveals her main target for 2020
Bianca Andreescu says winning the French Open was her number one target for this season, hopefully en-route to topping the WTA rankings.
The 19-year-old has suffered a wretched time with injuries since winning the US Open last season, with a knee concern severely limiting her court-time before the current enforced coronavirus outbreak.
However, that certainly doesn’t appear to have dampened her ambitions.
“Becoming world number one has always been up there,” Andreescu told TSN.
“Maybe the French Open will be held in September, who knows, hopefully.
“From the beginning of the year I spoke to my coach and the goal was to win the French Open.
“And since the French Open could still be a possibility then that’s still my goal and if I do that, I don’t know how the ranking system is going to be, but if I do that I think I’ll have a good chance to become No. 1.”
To win the French Open, she may have to go through defending champion and current top dog in the rankings Asleigh Barty, but Andreescu says that is absolutely fine with her.
“I would definitely love to play her because she’s one of the women on tour that has a different game style than most,” Andreescu added.
“And I think it’ll be a nice challenge to play her.
“It would definitely be a fun match for the audience.”
