I’m looking forward to discussing it further with him. It would be amazing if we could use each other’s ideas to start something new “Andreescu mentioned this.

“”Tennis Canada is committed to establishing a safer atmosphere for all of us,” said Bianca Andreescu, “since we know that mental health struggles are part of our sport.” I’m thrilled to represent Tennis Canada’s mental health initiative as an ambassador.
