Bianca An­dreescu takes the first 30 min­utes of her day to be with her­self. She shuts her eyes and looks at what she wants and where she aims to be. She learnt it from her glam­orous mother Maria.

“I started med­i­tat­ing and vi­su­al­iz­ing since I was 12 or 13, my mom in­tro­duced it to me,” the Cana­dian world No. 15 said. “It wasn’t such a big thing back then, but it’s get­ting more pop­u­lar. If you can con­trol your mind, then you can con­trol a lot of things.”

The 19-year-old’s mother and fa­ther Nicu, both of whom held cor­po­rate jobs, were at court­side with her puppy at the US Open. “My mom’s hon­estly the coolest per­son I know,” An­dreescu said.
