Bianca Andreescu has admitted than her incredible success this year has seen her adjust her goals for the season.
Back in January, the 18-year-old reached the Auckland final to climb to number 107 in the world.
However, just three months and a major title at Indian Wells later, she has soared to 23rd in the rankings.
As the tour prepares to test her on clay next, Andreescu admits her targets and expectations have been drastically altered.
“In my eyes I would like to maybe crack the Top 15 and do very well in the Grand Slams,” she told CBC.
It’s an answer that befits a player clearly brimming with confidence, as well she should if her analysis of her own strengths is anything to go by.
“I like to come to the net, I like to slice, I’m not going to hit the same ball over and over again.
“I’ll throw in a dropshot here and there. I’m also pretty aggressive with my shots, I like to go for it, and I think I move pretty well on the court.”
