"I see a huge difference" admits Andreescu after teaming up with new coach
Many things have changed for Andreescu since then as the Canadian failed to continue her ascent to the top of the tennis world mostly due to injuries. Andreescu admitted to being a different person when asked to reflect on her return to Flushing Meadows:
“I got goosebumps when I walked onto (Louis) Armstrong the first day. It just brought me back to 2019. I’m not the same person (as I was) back then. Taking so much time off, I feel like it helped me in many ways. But then getting into that competitive mindset, it kind of brought me back a little bit. I feel like that’s also a reason why I haven’t had the results I wanted.”
Andreescu arrived in New York with a new coach after she parted ways with her old coach who was by her side when she lifted the US Open trophy in 2019. Asked how that new partnership is working out she said:
“Right now I’m basically applying what he’s been telling me. I see a huge difference in practice. That whole confidence thing, I’m just going to have to play matches. That’s all I can really say, play matches, continue to train hard, prepare well, prepare mentally."
She finished off confidently stating:
“I know I’m going to get back to or get to where I want to be.”
