Bianca Andreescu: Enroute to Canadian Tennis History!
« on: March 18, 2019, 07:05:45 PM »
Whoa, what a ride for 18 yr. old Canada's phenom Bianca Andreescu!

Sunday at Indian Wells in the BNP Paribas Open, Andreescu emerged victorious defeating eighth-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany, enroute to making Canadian tennis history.

The  wildcard Andreescu becomes among the youngest winner at Indian Wells not seen since the U.S.' Serena Williams accomplished the feat twenty years prior. (Williams was all of 17).

It wasn't an easy victory for Andreesecu, considering the fact that all the hard work she put in to get to this point in the tournament, left her a little banged up and fatigued to boot.  But the Romanian-Canadian phenom did not disappoint, as she moved up in the rankings from 152 to...24th.  Yes, that fast.

With a nod to her country and supporters in Canada, plus acknowledging her many Romanian fans -- Andreescu is of Romanian descent -- with grace, poise, and that oh so Canadianness of traits that left many in the tennis world applauding her at every turn.

Foarțe bine, Bianca!
