On Saturday, Bianca Andreescu (Mississauga, ON) became the first Canadian player to win a Grand Slam singles title when she defeated Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 at the US Open. The 19-year-old was playing in the main draw for the very first time in Flushing Meadows. Her win will propel her into the Top 5 in the WTA rankings.

After losing in the qualifying round at the 2018 US Open, Andreescu came back just one year later to capture the most important title in her young career. She got off to a strong start in her first Grand Slam final, taking an early break and eventually going up a set. In the second, she raced out to a quick lead, but the experienced Williams was not going to go down without a fight. Trailing 5-1 in the second set, the American clawed her way back into the match, bringing it to five-all. But Andreescu, known for playing her best tennis in big moments, stepped up to the plate and got the late break she needed to capture her maiden Grand Slam title.

Canada came away with a 1:0 victory in its second group stage match of the 2018 Algarve Cup after featuring a different lineup from its opening match.  Playing a 3-5-2 formation with Christine Sinclair and Jordyn Huitema on the front line, Canada dominated their opponent with an aggressive attack up the sidelines.

Canada's lone goal was scored in the 25th minute after Huitema was pulled down in the box by Russian captain Anna Zozhnikova.  Canada’s captain and all-time goals leader Sinclair made no mistake by drilling the ball low into the corner. It was Sinclair’s first goal of the tournament and the 170th of her international goal, putting her only 14 behind the all-time women’s international goalscoring record.
