September 9, 2019 Guelph, Ontario: What a fantastic weekend for Tennis in Canada as HEAD athlete, Bianca Andreescu becomes the 2019 US Open Champion after a solid victory over Serena Williams 6-3,7-5 on Saturday afternoon.
Not only is this a tremendous feat onto its own, however, Andreescu at 19 years of age, becomes the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam single’s title.
Andreescu’s tennis game has been extremely solid this year with a 44-4 record. She has managed to capture two major ATP 1000 single’s titles this year; the first in March at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells; and most recently at the Rogers Cup in Toronto. She is 8-0 against top 10 players and hasn’t lost a completed match since early March. With this win, her ranking will jump to #5 on the WTA rankings.
