Bianca Andreescu looks to move up in rankings after U.S. Open win

Bianca Andreescu looks to move up in rankings after U.S. Open win TORONTO — Canada's Bianca Andreescu has bigger goals in mind after winning her first Grand Slam title on Saturday at the U.S. Open. The 19-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., says she hopes to win "as many Grand Slams as possible" and become the No. 1-ranked player in the world. Andreescu spoke to reporters in Canada on Wednesday for the first time since beating Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final in New York. The half-hour press conference was held at the Aviva Centre, where Andreescu beat Williams in the Rogers Cup final exactly one month ago when the latter player retired with a back injury after just four games.

If you have been considering active visualization, this seems a fine time to start. The technique certainly has worked wonders for Bianca Andreescu , a 19-year-old Canadian tennis player, who for years has been closing her eyes and envisioning herself winning the United States Open against Serena

MONTREAL — Bianca Andreescu's coach says the tentative plan is for the Canadian tennis star to return to action at the Beijing Open later this month.

Sylvain Bruneau says the U.S. Open women's champ likely will play one tournament during the WTA Tour's Asian swing — with the Beijing Open, Sept. 28-Oct. 6 as the target.

The Beijing Open is part of the sport's top level of events below Grand Slams like the U.S. Open — called a Premier Mandatory tournament.

Bruneau says Andreescu also hopes to qualify for the season-ending WTA Finals, Oct. 27-Nov. 3 in Shenzhen, China.

Andreescu, a 19-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., is fourth in the standings for the Finals. The top eight qualify for the event.

Andreescu beat American legend Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final on Saturday in New York. The Canadian reached No. 5 in the rankings with the win after starting the year outside the top 150.
