Bianca Andreescu rises to 5th in WTA rankings following US Open win

Published

on

2019 just keeps on getting better for Bianca Andreescu.

Following her big US Open win vs Serena Williams over the weekend, it has been announced that the 19-year old has soared to the no.5 ranking for the first time in her historic career

The Canadian teenager has essentially come out of nowhere in 2019. She has risen from 152nd in the world to begin the year to where she is now.

To put her dominance in perspective: she has posted a 38-4 record this year (just four losses!!!), and hasn’t lost a completed match since losing to Sofia Kenin in the semifinals in Acapulco, Mexico on March 1; over 190 days ago!

Her last official loss was when she was forced to pull out early due to a shoulder injury in a round-of-16 match against Anett Kontaveit on March 25.

She is also undefeated when she faces off against top-10 seeds (8-0), and has beaten the legendary Serena Williams TWICE in a span of a couple months.

To go a long with her first grand slam title after winning the 2019 US Open, she has also won the Rogers Cup (Canadian Open), and BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells Open).

It has been confirmed that the Brooklyn Nets star will be fined
$50,000 by the NBA for violating coronavirus safety protocols by attending his sister’s birthday party without wearing a mask.

During COVID-19 times, the league is not allowing to go to bars/clubs or any social gatherings that includes 15 or more people.

As for all the games he voluntarily decided to miss for “personal reasons”, he will forfeit $816,898 in salary.

Despite all the controversy he has caused, he appears to be on the verge of returning to the team. According to reports, he is expected to play in Saturday’s game against the Orlando Magic assuming he continues to test negative for COVID-19 leading up to the day.

It will also be the debut of newly acquired superstar James Harden, who was traded to the Nets earlier this week.
