Bianca Andreescu is done dwelling on past successes

Bianca Andreescu is back in tennis paradise for the first time since she won the title back in 2019. A lot has happened since she won the WTA 1000 event, she's now a Grand Slam champion and making massive steps when it comes to emotional and mental growth.
According to the world No. 21, she recommends not allowing success on the court to go to your head. Staying grounded is the key for all players, but especially rising stars and the younger generation.
"Stay confident, obviously, but don't become stuck up," Andreescu said. "Stay humble, remain grateful and continue to work hard because as everyone says, it's easy to get to the top, but staying at the top, that's the hardest part."
Andreescu knows a thing or two about the difficulty level of not winning on the major stage, but being able to do so consistently. Not only does it require constant physical and mental strength to produce high-quality tennis each week of the long 11-month season, but it also requires avoiding injury. Since winning the US Open title in 2019, the 21-year-old has battled to stay healthy enough to compete.
However, in 2021 she's done reflecting on the past and is staying present.
"The main thing this year for me was to stop looking in the past because that's what I was doing a lot and that's what was ruining me.
"I would always say, 'Oh I want to play like I did back in 2019. Why am I not playing like I used to," she said.
Andreescu is the No. 16 seed and received a bye into the second round. She will face the winner of Alison Riske and En-Shuo Liang.
