Motivated Bianca Andreescu dreaming big, saying ‘I want to surpass Serena Williams’

Bianca Andreescu and Serena Williams US Open

US Open champion Bianca Andreescu is setting her sights high, saying she hopes to surpass tennis’ greatest players like Chris Evert, Serena Williams and Margaret Court.

Andreescu became the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title last year when she beat Williams in the US Open final at Flushing Meadows.

Aged 19 years and 83 days at the time, she was also the 10th youngest woman to win a major.

The 20-year-old, though, wants the US Open to be the first of many Grand Slam titles as she hopes to beat Evert (18), Williams (23) and Court (24) when it comes to most majors.

“I want to surpass Serena [Williams] and her wins. Maybe even Chrissy Evert, who knows? Margaret Court,” she told CNN Sport.

“I like to dream big; it gives me more motivation to actually step on the court and continue doing what I’m doing.”

She added: “Everything I do, I always give 150% and I always want to be the best at it,” she said. “For my tennis career I put in so much effort and sacrificed a lot, so I want to be the best.

“Surpassing those players would make me the best but whatever God has in store for me.”
