‘It’s been a crazy dream come true’ – Bianca Andreescu discusses US Open win and stunning rankings rise
Bianca Andreescu says that the last year has been a ‘crazy dream come true’ after she rubber-stamped a remarkable rise by capturing the US Open title.
The teenager became the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam title and has climbed from nowhere to 5th in the world rankings after her victory over Serena Williams at Flushing Meadows last week.
She has also won titles at Indian Wells and Toronto, highlighting her as the top young star in women’s tennis right now.
“Playing against Serena in the final, I’ve been dreaming about this moment for a pretty long time,” Andreescu said on the Jimmy Fallon show. “This is honestly crazy.”
“Oh man, it feels so good. I made history in Canada — I’m truly blessed.

“Everything has been pretty hectic ever since, so I never really got the chance to let everything soak in.
“The last year has been pretty crazy — I was going through a really bad back injury, so now being able to hold this trophy is something really special.”
