Open Era female Grand Slam winners by country: Canada enters the list
Since the start of the Open Era, 24 different countries have “won” a Grand Slam trophy with Canada the latest to join the illustrious company.
The Great White North joined the list for female Grand Slam winners when Bianca Andreescu beat Serena Williams in the US Open final.
The 19-year-old is also the first male or female from Canada to taste success in the singles of a major with Eugenie Bouchard (Wimbledon 2014) and Milos Raonic (Wimbledon 2016) coming closest previously as they finished runners-up in Grand Slams.

Before Andreescu and Canada’s success at Flushing Meadows this year, Japan was the previous new entry when Naomi Osaka won the 2018 US Open.
