Bianca Andreescu would like to attack in 2023 with a man at her side who looked after her a few years ago: Christophe Lambert.

The way back to the top is rocky and paved with (injury) obstacles. Hardly any player knows this better than Bianca Andreescu, who surprisingly won the title at the US Open in 2019. Before that, the Canadian had also won the domestic WTA 1000 tournament in Toronto. In the spring of the same year, Andreescu made a big showing for the first time with the final victory against Angelique Kerber in Indian Wells. The sky seemed to be the limit.
Since then, however, no title has been added, Andreescu finished the 2022 season, still only 22 years old, as number 45 in the world. Incidentally, only a few places behind her compatriot Leylah Fernandez, who also caused a sensation at the US Open. Two years after Andreescu. And with the not insignificant flaw that Fernandez lost the final against Emma Raducanu.
Andreescu in the Bad Homburg final
Bianca Andreescu, whose best result of the season was the final in Bad Homburg (loss to Caroline Garcia), wants to climb higher again in 2023. And secured the services of Christophe Lambert, with whom she worked a few years ago. At that time, the coach was employed by Tennis Canada and was assigned to the still very young Andreescu.
Lambert gave up his position as Technical Director at the New Zealand Tennis Association to work with Andreescu. And also brings experience from the Chinese Davis Cup team and the British association LTA.
