Teenager Bianca Andreescu makes history at US Open

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.


Bouchard lands Rodina in US Open first round, Pospisil gets Verdasco

The singles draws are set for the 2017 US Open and it will feature two Canadians, Eugenie Bouchard (Montreal, QC) and Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver, BC). Four Canadians could possibly join Bouchard and Pospisil, as Françoise Abanda (Montreal, QC), Denis Shapovalov (Richmond Hill, ON), Peter Polansky (Thornhill, ON) and Frank Dancevic (Niagara Falls, ON) are playing in the final round of qualifications on Friday.

Bouchard will open against Evgeniya Rodina of Russia, who is currently ranked no. 83 in the world. The 23-year-old’s best result at the tournament was reaching the fourth round in both 2014 and 2015. The Canadian, currently ranked world no. 74, is coming into the US Open after reaching the second round at the WTA Premier event in New Haven. She could potentially face the tournament’s fourth seed Elina Svitolina in the second round. Other notable players in her quarter of the draw include French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko and defending US Open champion Angelique Kerber.


Alex De Minaur awarded US Open wildcard

Eighteen-year-old Alex De Minaur (NSW) has been awarded a wildcard into the US Open.

The rising Aussie star has had a breakthrough season which has seen his ranking soar from world No.351 in January to a career-high of 186 this week. He reached his first ATP Challenger final in Spain last week and won his first professional title, an ITF Futures, in Portugal last month.

Third seed Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland outgunned World No.1 Novak Djokovic 6-7 (1-7), 6-4, 7-5, 6-3, to clinch his first US Open title at Flushing Meadows, New York on Sunday.

The 31-year-old Swiss continued to show that he is a man for the big occasion, winning his third Grand Slam title in as many major final appearances, after he won the Australian Open in 2014 and the French Open in 2015.


Felix Auger-Aliassime wins US Open Junior Boys title

Felix Auger-Aliassime (Montreal) became just the fourth Canadian ever, and the youngest, to win a junior Grand Slam singles title on Sunday after defeating Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic 6-3, 6-0 at the US Open. This was the second attempt of the year for Auger-Aliassime who came up just short at the Junior French Open in June, finishing there as the runner-up.

Auger-Aliassime was dominant from the start, going up an early break in the first set to take a 4-1 lead. He never looked back, allowing his opponent to win only three games the entire match, which lasted just 58 minutes. He served incredibly well, winning 80 per cent of his first serve points and producing 22 winners versus seven for Kecmanovic. It was the perfect redemption match for Auger-Aliassime, who squandered three match points in the Junior French Open final before ultimately losing the match.
