Open Era female Grand Slam winners by country: Canada enters the list

Tennis Features
Bianca Andreescu and Canada fans

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.

In case you were wondering, 52 women have won at least one Grand Slam since the start of the Open Era in 1968 and Serena Williams leads the list with 23 (Margaret Court only won 11 of her titles after ’68).

But this is about countries and the United States lead the way with 86 Grand Slams won during the Open Era.
