Andreescu, Serena soar into Top 5

Andreescu, Serena soar into Top 5

"I could definitely get used to this feeling", Andreescu said.

New world number five Bianca Andreescu is determined to keep winning after her first grand slam success at the US Open. "I'm sure we'll cross paths eventually, hopefully a couple of times".

Their new article is titled "Bianca Andreescu is charming, a teenaged champion, and challenging to be the future of women's tennis", a total 180 on what they had before.

"I never thought it would be this hectic, but I'm not complaining", she told Good Morning America.

He says the Mississauga, Ont., teen embodies the Canadian identity and will likely consider what brands best represent her image, adding Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire spring to mind as natural fits.

With her U.S. Open win, the teen prodigy catapulted 10 spots to fifth in the latest WTA rankings, just ahead of her idol and reigning Wimbledon champion Simona Halep and four spots above 23-time Grand Slam victor and the woman she defeated in the final, Serena Williams.

Crombie said while timing is dependent on the tennis star's schedule, she's planning to offer Andreescu the honorary key to the city. "I have no idea how to repay everyone for that".


Bianca Andreescu jokingly called out Drake for not congratulating her on her big US Open win over the weekend.

She was so humble and composed for the whole interview, and also projected an air of confidence that most of us would have struggled to find at such a young age. The Romanian immigrants remain stoic, silent, and calm under pressure, much like their daughter, who's defeated a series of players under the national spotlight to get this far in the U.S. Open, including Belgium's Elise Mertens, and Switzerland's Belinda Bencic.

The rises of Andreescu and Williams displace Kiki Bertens from the elite eight: the Madrid and St Petersburg champion compiled just a 3-3 win-loss record during the summer hardcourt swing this year, falling in the third round of the US Open to Julia Goerges, and drops three places to No.9.

"I've been visualising ever since I was 12 or 13 when my incredible mother introduced me to it", she said.

"I have done the work and I feel like a ranking is a true reflection of where you are at", she said after losing Sunday's US Open doubles final with Victoria Azarenka to Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka. "Having my name amongst all these awesome champions is wonderful so hopefully I can just keep it going".
