Canadian star and youngster, Bianca Andreescu, took the world by storm after winning the 2019 US Open championship. She won her first Grand Slam in the very first year she made her breakthrough into the WTA Tour. 

Recently in an interview, when asked about her first idol, she exclaimed, “Kim Clijsters!” On being asked whether she had ever practiced with Kim Clijsters, the youngster replied,

No, not yet. I actually met her for the first time this year at Indian Wells and she said maybe we could play doubles together.”

The Great Belgian – Kim Clijsters

Former World No.1 Kim Clijsters shocked everyone by announcing her second comeback. Nearly after 7 years, the desire to achieve further greatness remains.

The four-time Grand Slam winner has had a decorated career so far. She has enjoyed great rivalries, be it with the William sisters or her fellow countrywoman Justine Henin. Their era in the game is one to remember.

Dream Run for Bianca Andreescu at US Open 2019

2019 was a year to remember for Bianca Andreescu. Beating Serena for one’s first Grand Slam title is not everyone’s cup of tea.

The Canadian did a double over arguably one of the greatest women’s tennis players ever, beating Serena Williams twice in 2019. At the age of 19, she claimed a career-high ranking of No. 4 in the world.

After suffering a knee injury at the 2019 WTA Finals, Andreescu missed the Australian Open 2020. She missed the next several months due to the coronavirus pandemic. The youngster plans to play the Australian Open in 2021 if everything goes smoothly.
