It’s time for the final of the Miami Open 2021, and defending champion Ashleigh Barty will face Bianca Andreescu for the title. Returning from an injury, Andreescu has definitely impressed fans with her phenomenal comeback. She managed to get past the in-form Garbine Muguruza and Maria Sakkari to reach the finals.
In an interview before the finals, Bianca Andreescu reflected that it has been a topsy-turvy journey for her after the comeback. She mentioned that while sometimes she feels like an octopus, other times she just doesn’t know how she gets certain blows. However, she also admitted that she always puts up a fight and never gives up.
“Sometimes I literally feel like an octopus running side by side, I feel like I have eight legs. It’s crazy. Sometimes I don’t even know how I get to certain blows. But it is this fighting spirit that I have always had in me, never to give up,” said Bianca in the interview. (Translated via Google Translate)
