Mississauga's Bianca Andreescu Takes Home Massive Earnings After Winning US Open

 

In case you missed the news yesterday, Mississauga native Bianca Andreescu made tennis history when she won the US Open 2019.

Andreescu was able to defeat opponent Serena Williams in the finals, making her the first Canadian to ever win the tournament as well as the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.

While this is a huge win for Andreescu that cements her place as one of the world’s top tennis players, it’s also a huge financial boon for her, considering the massive winnings.

According to Forbes, Andreescu picked up $3.85 million for winning the US Open 2019 — more money than she’s made throughout her entire career up until that point.

Right now, the young but exceptionally talented player is taking the time to enjoy her win, according to WTA Tennis.

I don’t think I’ve lost a match since March, so my confidence is sky-rocketing right now,” she said. “I just don’t want to take anything for granted because there’s going to be weeks where you’re going to lose. Hopefully, I can keep the momentum going.”
