Mississauga, Ontario’s very own Bianca Andreescu defeated Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 to become the first Canadian to ever win a Grand Slam singles title.
Andreescu, at only 19 years old, took down women’s tennis’ greatest player of all time, with Canada rallying behind her with the hashtag #SheTheNorth, an obvious nod at the Toronto Raptors’ #WeTheNorth hashtag.
Andreescu, clearly exhausted after the thrilling bout against Williams, laid on the hardcourt, covering her face with her hands.
This wasn’t the first time that the two had squared off, either. At last month’s Rogers Cup women’s final, Andreescu again beat out Williams once she went down 3-1 in the first set.
Andreescu defeated Taylor Townsend (US), Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark), Kirsten Flipkens (Belgium), and Katie Volynets (US) on her way to the final.
