Newly crowned US Open champion Bianca Andreescu makes her WTA Top 10 debut at World No.5 today, September 9 for the first time in her career.
Andreescu becomes the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title and the third Canadian woman to appear in the Top 10, joining Eugenie Bouchard and Carling Bassett-Seguso in this elite group. Her 6-3, 7-5 win over Serena Williams prevented the American from winning her record-tying 24th major singles title.
So far in the 2019 season, Andreescu has claimed all three of her WTA singles titles, including victories at the BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells), Rogers Cup presented by National Bank (Toronto) and now her maiden Grand Slam trophy at the US Open.
Andreescu previously had never been further than the second round at a Grand Slam, was the first Canadian to advance to the final of a Grand Slam since Eugenie Bouchard (2014 Wimbledon, lost in final) and is just the second Canadian ever (Bouchard) to reach a major title match.
