"Stepping on that court, I really felt like I belonged there": Andreescu responds to Evert's praise, takes positives from Wimbledon run

Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu may have seen her Wimbledon campaign come to an early end, but she leaves on a high note following some praise from WTA great Chris Evert.

Andreescu showed flashes of the game that saw her clinch her maiden Grand Slam title at the 2019 US Open, before falling to 2022 finalist Ons Jabeur in three sets during their third round clash.

Evert believes Andreescu has rediscovered her form

Former World No.1 Evert had high praise for the Canadian, believing she was showing signs of the form that saw her rise to the top 5 in 2019.

"Bianca's back," Evert declared. "She's hitting the ball. She's moving well. She looks happy and she was right in there with Jabeur, who is No. 6 in the world. I was just so happy to see her healthy, but also with that touch, the variety and the power."

Upon learning about the praise from Evert, Andreescu agreed with the assessment.

"In a way, for sure," said the former World No.4. "Stepping on that court, I really felt like I belonged there. I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be, and I was just feeling my shots. I was staying very positive. My energy was great."
