Tennis Talk – September 2019

The first Canadian Grand Slam singles champion. The first born in the 2000’s to win a major. The highest ranking for a Canadian woman in singles. She’s all those things and so much more. She the North.

Bianca Andreescu made history on September 7th, 2019 when she defeated one of the greatest athletes of all time, Serena Williams. Andreescu played on the biggest stage in tennis and won the US Open Championship in straight sets over Williams. Not only did she make Canadian history, she made the entire world take notice of what our country has to offer and what potential lies ahead for those the nineteen-year-old inspired in her ascent to the top. Andreescu’s phenomenal season culminated in a moment that captured a nation – one that will have you saying “Where were you when it happened?” for years to come. Thank you Bianca.
