In a press conference, Bianca Andreescu commented on her Rogers Cup success in Toronto after playing just four games in the final against Serena” williams>. “It’s been pretty hectic”, said the Canadian. “I’ve been talking to a lot of people, taking a lot of pictures.
So it really hasn’t sunk in yet. It’s not easy for Serena, for sure, to pull out, especially to pull out in a final. I know how she feels because I’ve done that many times in my short career. But sometimes you just have to listen to your body.
And, yeah, it’s not the way I wanted to win, but a win is a win. So I’m really, really happy.” Asked if she noticed from the beginning that something was wrong, Andreescu replied: “I didn’t notice anything whatsoever.
It was very surprising. But sometimes things happen. And, sadly, it had to be like that. But I wish her the fastest recovery.” On how she came back from multiple injuries, Andreescu added: “From practice. I meditate a lot.
I visualize a lot. I know I’ve said that a lot at Indian Wells. I think it’s really important to work your mind just as hard as you work physically. I think a lot of people just work physically and forget about the mental part, but in reality, your brain is controlling your body.
So if you’re strong mentally, then I think you can find other resources to push your body physically if things aren’t going your way in that sense. And I think that’s what I’ve been doing this week and the past season.”
