#SheTheNorth: Canada Basks in Andreescu's Success
What's next for the Mississauga teen, now Canada's first Grand Slam singles champion?
"I just want to keep dreaming big," 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu told reporters Sunday, from atop Rockefeller Center in New York.
Andreescu beat none other than Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 in a thrilling women's U.S. Open final.
She said she planned to take a few days off from training but Andreescu will be busy none the less. She makes an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday.
There may be even more awards coming her way.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie says she plans to award her the key to the city.
She'll also ask city council to look at the possibility of a parade or celebration in Andreescu's honour, possibly even a street name.
Andreescu says she's been feeling the love from back home. "I just want to go back home and feel all the good vibes back in Canada," she said. "I've been feeling it on social media but actually being there to witness it and feel it will be something very special."
