Bianca Andreescu eyes Beijing for return after winning US Open

Bianca Andreescu eyes Beijing for return after winning US Open

Being the first Canadian Grand Slam singles champion - at age 19, no less - is notable, but the real story is Andreescu's meteoric rise, said Cary Kaplan, president of marketing firm Cosmos Sports & Entertainment.

"She's put Canada back on the global tennis map ...and (I'm proud) that a Canadian girl could come so far so fast in her tennis career", she said.

Andreescu has called her mom "the coolest person I know". "It's inexcusable for me to play at that level".

"I've been visualising ever since I was 12 or 13 when my awesome mother introduced me to it", she said.

When Fallon asked if Andreescu was nervous to face the 23-time Grand Slam champion, she said she felt like she "was able to control my emotions a little bit better". "I find it very helpful".

The 19-year-old, who completed just one match between March and August due to a shoulder injury, is undefeated since returning to competition, lifting her maiden Grand Slam trophy in NY last week in stunning fashion - Andreescu's third title following her successes in Indian Wells and Toronto. "Certainly, I think it's really inspiring both for boys and girls".

Until it runs out, Copper Branch plans to continue using her image on menu boards and its website, but also wants to ramp up the connection between Andreescu and the chain.

Crombie said while timing is dependent on the tennis star's schedule, she's planning to offer Andreescu the honorary key to the city.

Bianca Andreescu scored a big win for Canadian tennis on Saturday and another big win for Montreal's fashion scene on Sunday. That hard work included sacrifices from her parents, Nicu and Maria Andreescu, who emigrated from Romania to Canada, where Bianca Andreescu was born. She took home $3.85 million with her U.S. Open win. "This is truly an fantastic accomplishment but I could definitely get used to this feeling".

"I was very impressed with how composed she was and very focussed", added the civic leader. "I didn't really have the time to just see what's happening in my life right now".
