Bianca Andreescu in such a young age has brushed up many big names players during her meteoric rise in women’s tennis, but the Canadian teenager is wary for now of injuries and not opponents. Her injuries are now becoming the biggest obstacles in her career.
Andreascu has received a lot of injuries in her young career, and she needs to overcome her issues when she beats former world number one Angelique Kelber in Sunday's Indian Wells final.
This victory made the 18-year-old Andreascu the youngest Indian Wells champion since Serena Williams in 1999 and the first to win the biggest tennis championship in four Grand Slam tournaments.
"I've never been in a situation like that before. Never been in a final of a premier event playing a very high-level opponent," Andreescu said on Tuesday during a conference call from Florida where she is competing in the Miami Open.
"So I think it was also all of the emotions and all of the tension that was going through my body that caused me to get even more tired than I usually would."
The struggling young player told her coach after falling behind 3-2 in the decisive third set of her win over the match playing with three-time winner of Grand Slam champion Kerber and said “feet were burning” and that time she was having trouble in moving on the court.
Andreascu said that after having so many injuries and being missing out from her matches she has already taken steps to try to find ways to avoid further injuries. "Tennis Canada has a great group of doctors and I've been running some tests with them to see what the problem is," said Andreescu.
"But definitely after Miami I will take a good two or three weeks off just figuring out what to do better with my body and my nutrition and my mind."
