Serena for the win

Appearing in a cheeky bit ahead of her appearance at the Montreal event, Bianca answered a few questions for fans and followers. From dating tips to weird thoughts during the game, the 21-year-old Canadian had all to offer. However, it was her take on the American legend that made the most buzz.

When asked about a player she would like to hire as her fashion guru, she said, “Uhh, good question. I’d say, Johanna Konta or Serena Williams.”

However, it wasn’t long until the defending champion began her campaign on-court. Aiming for a chance into the third round, she faced qualifier Harriet Dart and went all guns blazing.
