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.

It has been an incredible journey for the Canadian tennis player as Andreescu, who started out ranked 152, is now ranked 5th in the women’s tennis rankings following her U.S Open victory. After the historic match Andreescu said “I worked really hard for this moment…This year has been a dream come true and being able to play on this stage against Serena, a true legend in this sport, is amazing.” Bianca Andreescu is having a great season so far as she is currently 9-1 (9 wins and 1 loss), winning the Canadian Open, Indian Wells Open, and now the U.S Open in her 2019 season.
