Bianca Andreescu is a Canadian professional tennis player. Se reached a ranking of singles number 5 in his career on September 9, 2019, according to the classification of the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA). On August 11, 2019, Andreescu became the first Canadian woman to win the Canadian Open in singles since Faye Urban in 1969. She defeated Serena Williams in the 2019 U.S. Open final, becoming the first Canadian and the first player.

Without a doubt, Andreescu, who is a teenage champion, could be considered a remarkable Canadian success story. In fact, it could be said that it is the ideal immigrant success story. Where parents go in search of a better life, they have a child and she has the opportunity to cultivate her talent in a way she might not have had.

Certainly, Andreescu has often been decidedly informal. She has always known that this was possible, which probably comes from the fact that throughout the season, all she has done is beat almost everyone who took the court against her.

Clear goals for the future

It should be noted that with a full interview room and cameras clicking, someone asked Andreescu if he was ready for the fame that comes from being a great champion. She has often said that she dreamed of winning that game, she visualized beating Serena Williams in a Slam final, but nevertheless, she wonders if she also expected fame.

Andreescu wrinkled his face as he thought about it. There was a pause. “I guess it is, yeah”, she said, emphasis on the guess. “I never really thought about being famous. My goals have been to just win as many Grand Slams as possible, become №1 in the world. But the idea of fame never really crossed my mind”.

In addition, she added, “I’m not complaining, though”. The smile was bigger now. “It’s been a crazy ride this year. I can definitely get used to this feeling. ”

It has been said that she has put in her ear some of the stereotypes of Canadian behavior. She is safe and a bit cheeky, and plays an aggressive style that is marked with many loud screams and punches. A New York Times tennis writer described Andreescu as porting herself “as an alpha” more than any WTA newcomer in recent memory, and that seems correct. She is not demure, or just happy to be there; She appears, crushes the winners and throws a shout that tells her opponent that she is not playing.
