A day after US Open win, Andreescu already hungry for more

2 0 0



NEW YORK – With the Empire State Building in the background, Bianca Andreescu plotted her tennis empire. A day after winning the US Open, the 19-year-old was already hungry for more.

"At the beginning of the year I wanted to crack the top 100, but I guess I have to start setting my goals a bit higher," Andreescu said after a photo-op on the observation deck at Rockefeller Center, 70 stories up. "Let’s say, top three by the end of the year and, I don’t know, win the WTA Tour Finals."

Andreescu will be No. 5 in Monday's new rankings only 11 points behind last year's US Open champion Naomi Osaka and 197 points back of Elina Svitolina at No. 3. The top eight point-getters this season will qualify for the WTA Finals in Shenzhen and with the title in Flushing Meadows, Andreescu is up to No. 4 in the race for those spots.

Will not be very long before Bibi @Bandreescu_ will be number ☝️ on @WTA tour, number 4 now on live race 🏁 and only 750 points behind........
