Bianca Andreescu had an incredible run at the Miami Open 2021. Canadian was powerless to capture the title in the championship due to an injury concern. However, the 20-year-old admits she is proud of herself and super resilient.
After a long break, Andreescu made her comeback in the Australian Open summer series. Even though Bianca exited earlier from the Melbourne Major event, she advanced into the Phillip Island Trophy’s semifinal.
Miami Open Was A Great Tournament, says Bianca Andreescu
Afterwards, the former World No.4 has competed at the Miami Open 2021. With four three-set victories, the No.8 seed reached her first final since the 2019 US Open. In the championship match against No.1 seed Ashleigh Barty, she walked over when the score was 3-6, 0-4 due to an ankle injury.
“It was a great tournament. I really fought through very tough matches. My body seemed to be good up until today. I think it was just, like, a freak accident.” Andreescu said in her post-match press conference.
The 2019 US Open title winner stressed she is merely 20-year-old and not willing to force herself at this moment.
Bianca continued, “No one wants to end a tournament retiring, especially in the finals. But things happen, and I want to look ahead in my career. I’m only 20. I’m not trying to risk anything right now.”
“I’m Proud Of Myself For That Because I’m Super Resilient”: Andreescu
Despite the final withdrawal, Bianca played marathon matches against Amanda Anisimova, Garbine Muguruza, Sara Sorribes Tormo, and Maria Sakkari. The last fortnight, she spent nearly 12 hours on the Miami Gardens’ blue courts.
“I’m proud of myself for that because I’m super resilient,” the Canadian added. “For me to do that today took a lot. It feels like I played three tournaments in one with all the time I had on the court, which is awesome considering I haven’t been playing a lot of tournaments over the last couple of months,” Andreescu confessed.
Hopefully, Bianca Andreescu will recover soon and entertain us with her elegant tennis skills.
