18-Year-Old Mississauga Tennis Star Advances in Australian Open
It’s no secret that it’s been an absolutely huge year for 18-year-old up and coming tennis star Bianca Andreescu.
The teen athlete, who hails from Mississauga, recently made headlines when she defeated world-famous tennis champion Venus Williams on Jan. 4 in the 2019 ASB Classic Quarterfinal in Auckland, New Zealand
Prior to her impressive win against one of the world’s best known tennis stars, she defeated Caroline Wozniacki in another huge upset.
Last weekend, Andreescu’s incredible winning streak came to an end when she was defeated by defending champ Julia Goerges in the finals.
But she’s currently picking up speed in the Australian Open.
