At 19 years old, the Mississauga Ontario native wins her first Grand Slam title at the U.S Open Tennis Championship this past Saturday. It was truly an unforgettable match, with Canada’s Bianca Andreescu up against the 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. Although Andreescu lead 5-1 in the second set, Serena Williams was able to turn the game around to tie the set at 5-5 later in the match. At the end of the 1 hour and 40-minute match, Bianca Andreescu was able to close the game, winning 6-3 in the first set and 7-5 in the second set. Shortly after Andreescu’s historic win, #SHETHENORTH and #WETHENORTH started trending across social media as she is Canada’s first Grand Slam singles tennis champion.
