Canadian tennis player Bianca Andreescu commented on reaching the US Open final.
“I’ve dreamed about such a moment since childhood. But I don’t think that many really believed that I was capable of it. I believed in myself. After I realized the matchball, I was shocked. But at the same time I worked hard to get this far.
I deserve to reach the finals. That was not easy. Belinda hits the ball very powerfully and flat. My knees almost touched the court. Playing with her was sad. But that is why she is such a wonderful tennis player. I am very glad that I was able to cope with everything. I tried to change the rhythm as much as possible. From the beginning of the match I wanted to do this. It is not easy when you play with an opponent who performs such deep and flat punches. But the main reason for the victory was that I did not stop fighting. I didn’t give up.
I remember always telling my team that I wanted to play with Williams before she finished her career. I look forward to this match. She is an amazing champion on the court and beyond. It will be fun. I remember that I watched her matches as early as 10 years old. I saw most of her victories in Grand Slam tournaments.
On Saturday, she will fight for the 24th title. I am sure that Serena will show her best tennis. I will try to do it too. May the fittest win. In our final in Toronto, I did not think about who is on the other half of the court. I think those four games will help me on Saturday, ” Tennis of Ukraine quotes Andrescu.
