Bianca Andreescu is already a Top 15 fixture in the WTA rankings, but her coach thinks that there is no limit to how high she can climb.
Bianca Andreescu‘s coach, Sylvain Bruneau, expects big things from his charge in the years to come. And now that they’ve weathered some very scary injury difficulties, he believes that Andreescu is more equipped to manage her calendar as she continues to evolve as a player.
But most important—the talent is clearly there. Andreescu proved yet again that she is a big-time performer last week in Toronto when she became the first Canadian Woman to take home the Rogers Cup singles title in 50 years.
It was impressive on many levels, says Andreescu’s coach.
"She was away for many weeks,” Bruneau told TVA Sports. “She returned to the game and won at the Rogers Cup despite very little preparation. There was also a lot of pressure to play at home. It can sometimes be an advantage, but also a disadvantage. It's remarkable what she just did."
Now at No.14 in the world, Bruneau believes that Andreescu can climb much higher. Can she make it all the way to No.1? Why not?
"There is no limit to her potential and ranking," said Bruneau. “Bianca could be top ten, top five and even first in the world. These are goals that are achievable. As long as she stays healthy and cares deeply about her career.”
Already known for a varied and creative game style, Andreescu is also becoming known as a clutch performer on the circuit. She has won all seven of her matches against Top 10 players, and reeled off ten consecutive three-set victories.
The sky is clearly the limit, but Bruneau believes that there is still plenty of room for improvement for the 19-year-old.
"She has a complete game, she can do a lot of things on the court,” he says. “What sets her apart from other players on the circuit is that she has a very creative and very physical tennis. We will have to be very careful with her scheduling and make good choices. We had the advantage early in the season to play several matches and build confidence. But after several matches, there were several injuries. "
