Bianca Andreescu reveals her aim to ‘surpass Serena Williams in titles’

Bianca Andreescu has revealed her aim to win more Grand Slam titles than Serena Williams. 

The 20 year-old Canadian is the reigning US Open and Canadian Open champion, and has Williams’ 23 grand-slam haul in her sights. 

She suffered a knee injury at the WTA Finals in Shenzen in November and has been unable to play since, but she is determined to recover and continue to compete at the top-level. 

Andreescu, the world No 6, told CNN: "I want to surpass Serena [Williams] and her wins.

"Maybe even Chrissy Evert, who knows? Margaret Court?

"I like to dream big; it gives me more motivation to actually step on the court and continue doing what I’m doing.

"For my tennis career I put in so much effort and sacrificed a lot, so I want to be the best.

“Surpassing those players would make me the best but whatever God has in store for me.”
