Bianca Andreescu Wins The Rogers Cup And Receives Praise Worldwide For Her Sportsmanship

A 50-year drought ended after Serena Williams retired from the Rogers Cup final, giving teen-wonder Bianca Andreescu the big hometown win. Andreescu, from Mississauga is the first Canadian to win the women’s competition since Faye Urban did it, back in 1969. As soon as she heard that Williams was retiring from the final, Andreescu went to her opponent’s bench, took a knee, and started consoling the tennis legend. Williams said she was impressed with the 19-year-old’s class in their shared moment on the bench, calling her a “great sportswoman” and an “old soul.”
