Windsor Tennis Club Excited Over Andreescu's Victory


Tennis Clubs in Windsor are all still buzzing after  Canadian Bianca Andreescu won the Grand Slam singles title on the weekend.

The 19-year-old Canadian from Mississauga, Ontario beat Serena Williams in the U.S Open women's final in New York on Saturday.

Manager of the Parkside Tennis Club Windsor Marieus Mag has seen Andreescu in previous tournaments as a junior and says she already had potential at a young age.

"She played juniors and we know her very well, she was very promising ever since then," he says.  "But you never know how far you can get once you switch to pros so we were all excited to see her succeed and she is unbelievable."

Mag says the win is fantastic for the sport because it will inspire other young Canadians to pick up a racket and play.

As for the victory, Mag says he wasn't surprised by the win because Andreescu has proven that she can win.

"She didn't lose a match to top ten players yet this year," he says. "She has tremendous power, very smart, very tough mentally so I can not say it was a surprise. Maybe the score, the way she handled it, maybe a little bit, but the win not so much."

He believes this is only the beginning for Andreescu and that more majors are to come.

 Andreescu was the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam title and is the first woman to win the trophy at Flushing Meadows in her tournament debut in the Open era.
