Mississauga native Bianca Andreescu proceeds to the second round of the 2022 French Open after a successful first day.
Andreescu played Belgium’s Ysaline Bonaventure today (May 23) and won the match 3-6, 7-5, 6-0.
“The match was definitely all over the place for me,” Andreescu told the WTA. “I feel my nerves at the beginning got the best of me. I was pretty nervous coming into the match.”
Andreescu is playing in her fourth Roland Garros main draw, and her win against Bonaventure is just her second in Paris.
The last time Andreescu won here was in 2019, when she battled to eliminate Czechia Marie Bouzkova.
Andreescu’s next match is against number 14 seed Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, a rematch of the 2019 US Open semi-final. There, in their first and only meeting, Andreescu won 7-6, 7-5 on her way to winning the title that year.
