This has been the year for 19-year-old Mississauga native Bianca Andreescu. First, she wins the Rogers Cup in Toronto in August, and then she wins the U.S. freakin’ open, making her the first Canadian to claim a Grand Slam title! Not only that, she beat the woman, the myth, the legend: Serena Williams. Quite an impressive feat for someone who can’t even legally drink a beer stateside. Naturally, fellow Canucks couldn’t contain their excitement about Bianca’s big W.
The Toronto Raptors, who also celebrated a championship this summer, congratulated Bianca via Twitter:
Praise for Bianca didn’t stop there, with many other athletes, celebrities, and public figures tweeting about her success.
