‘The injuries have been beneficial’ – Bianca Andreescu determined to learn from injury nightmare
Bianca Andreescu believes her injury woes can be turned into a positive for her career, provided she is able to learn from them.
The 19-year-old Canadian had a stunning 2019, crowning a 147-place climb in the rankings by winning the US Open, beating Serena Williams in the final, as well as Indian Wells and the Rogers Cup.
However, she has barely played since due to a a series of injuries, including a knee complaint she suffered at the WTA Finals in Shenzen in November.
Andreescu, though, is determined to remain positive.
“There’s good bad in every situation,” Andreescu said told TSN.
“But for me, having these injuries at such a young age in my view I think are beneficial because it really helps me understand my body more and what I want physically and mentally.
“Or knowing what my threshold is and all of that which will help me prevent more injuries in the future I would hope.
“So I’m trying to take it as a positive as much as I can because I’ve learned so much about myself during those times so I’m definitely grateful.
“It’s a bittersweet period when that happens.”
