Bianca Andreescu: ‘It’s not like I am the only one that’s retiring from tournaments injured’

Bianca Andreescu says she is ‘confident’ she can conquer her injury worries and start having fun on a tennis court again as she prepares for the Miami Open. 

Andreescu won the US Open two years ago as a teenager but injured her knee at the WTA Finals just a couple of months later.

She has struggled to play many matches since, and only made her comeback at the Australian Open last month.

The Canadian star admits that the possibility of another injury is a concern for her, but she believes the way to get past that is ultimately a very simple one.

“Just feeling good out there, I think that’s that main thing that’s going to help me get rid of that,” Andreescu said in Miami.

“I am a professional athlete that’s wearing and tearing her body, so it’s normal to have pains here and there, and it’s not like I am the only one that’s retiring from tournaments and stuff like that. So many players do the same.

“I am feeling confident going into the event and always trying my hardest. I am the type of person to always set high expectations for myself.

“Now, my main goal is to be happy out there and enjoy myself as much as I can. Even if my tennis feels off, I want to take it as something I can push through and feel fulfilled after the match.”
