Canadian tennis is certainly on the rise. With Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov continuing to be a force on the men’s side of the tennis world, a new face has emerged as potentially Canada’s next top tennis player on the women’s side. Her name is Bianca Andreescu.
The 18-year-old has shown well at multiple tournaments recently, but Andreescu likely marked her biggest career highlight to this point by winning the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells on Sunday.
Andreescu defeated the #8 seed Angelique Kerber from Germany, surprising many and continuing to establish herself on the courts. With Eugenie Bouchard not enjoying the same success she was a few years ago, Canadians were very happy to see another Canadian start to make some major waves on the Women’s side.
The future is bright in Canadian tennis!
