We knew Bibi got game, but now a new generation will be introduced to 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu with her children’s book debut: “A Story about Tennis, Meditation and a Dog Named Coco.”
Co-written by Mary Beth Leatherdale and illustrated by Chelsea O’Byrne, the book will be released in late May 2022—during Roland Garros.
“Writing my own book has always been a dream of mine,” Andreescu wrote on Instagram. “I can’t wait for this to be here!”
Andreescu enjoyed a storybook breakthrough into the tennis world in 2019 when titles in Indian Wells and Toronto foreshadowed a maiden major triumph in Flushing Meadows, where she stunned 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams to win the US Open.
A combination of injuries and the ensuing pandemic has stunted her progress since, though she returned to form earlier this spring when she finished runner-up at the Miami Open to world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty.
“My mind's all over the place with many different thoughts and opinions,” she explained after a BNP Paribas Open exit this fall. “I think it's more of just being on the court and practicing really hard and working on certain things, because you see glimpses of me applying a lot of the things I work on in practice but it's not consistent.”
With the off-season underway, Andreescu is likely preparing a compelling sequel—one that reminds both readers and fans that Bibi does, indeed, got game.
