Canadian has been dogged by bad luck since winning her first major at Flushing Meadows in 2019, but now she is back with her eye on the long term
Two years ago Bianca Andreescu seemed as if she had the tennis world in the palm of her hand. Throughout the 2019 season she emerged at the top table of the women’s tour in a unique set of circumstances. So many times she would travel to a tournament and struggle with injury along the way. Yet, despite each new setback, somehow her forward momentum never halted.
In her first full year on the WTA circuit at 18 Andreescu won the Indian Wells WTA 1000 tournament as a wildcard before suffering from a five-month shoulder injury. On her return she clinched the Rogers Cup, her home event in Canada, without any match practice beforehand. In her second she upset Serena Williams in the US Open final to clinch her first major title.
