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.

Tennis Talk – August 2019

This year’s Rogers Cup presented a pair of all-Canadian showdowns in a highly anticipated first round of action for both men and women competing in Montreal and Toronto.

In his first Rogers Cup appearance, Felix Auger-Aliassime bested Vancouver’s Vasek Pospisil on the men’s side – while Bianca Andreescu returned from injury to defeat Genie Bouchard in a three-set thriller. Auger-Aliassime advanced to face fellow Canadian Milos Raonic, but their battle was cut short as Raonic’s injury woes forced him to retire after the second set. Andreescu followed up her victory over Bouchard with another gutty three-set win over Daria Kasatkina.

At just nineteen years of age, both Andreescu and Auger-Aliassime are certainly on the rise in their young careers and have done the nation proud as the last woman and man standing in Canada’s premiere tennis tournament. The tennis teens have put on a show that we can’t wait to watch for years to come.
