Andreescu explodes against Nike for his kit at the US Open

The wind played tricks on Bianca Andreescu in her US Open first round match against France’s Harmony Tan. A match in which Andreescu, champion of the tournament in 2019, managed to settle in three sets but in which she had several problems because of her kit to play.

Andreescu, who won the first set 6-0 and lost the second 3-6, was forced to ask the chair umpire for a break to go to the locker room to change clothes as the wind lifted the skirt that she wore to play. . “That won’t count as one of my breaks, will it?” It’s not my fault, it’s Nike’s fault. This dress is so bad…I have to change,” begged chair umpire Andreescu.

Finally Andreescu was able to change to face the third set in a tank top and shorts to win the set 6-1 and close the match.

At the post-match press conference, Andreescu qualified his remarks and apologized to Nike for his criticism during the game. “The skirt bothered me on some forehands. He climbed a bit and the wind didn’t help. I didn’t mean to disrespect the referee. I tried to talk him out of taking my bathroom break because we only have two, and he was kind enough to tell me it was no problem. I could have made a different clothing choice, so I apologize if I disrespected anyone. I love Nike and hope to be with them for the rest of my life.”
