After the loss, Andreescu stated, “It kind of sucks that I have to do a press conference after a loss like that because I’m in the worst freaking mood ever. I honestly don’t want to talk to anybody or answer these questions, no offense to anyone. I’m trying to stay positive here right now, I know tomorrow is another day and I’ll be fine hopefully. But right now I’m so pissed I could cry a river.”
