It’s been an amazing year for 19-year-old tennis superstar (and Mississauga native) Bianca Andreescu, and hundreds of fans and festive shoppers were recently able to catch a glimpse of the young athlete at the lighting of the Eaton Centre’s 108-foot-tall Christmas tree in Toronto.

You can see a video, taken by YouTube user Eduardo M, below:

The tree lighting event kicked off at 6:30 pm in the shopping centre’s centre court on Nov. 14. 

The Grand Slam champion was joined by DJ 4KORNERS to kick off the holiday season at the annual event.

In recent months, Andreescu has taken the tennis world by storm, winning several major tournaments, including the U.S. Open. At the Open, she defeated tennis royalty and living legend Serena Williams in straight sets.

She became the first Canadian to ever win a Grand Slam singles title this season–when a player wins the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open–as well as the first-ever Grand Slam winner born in the 2000s. 

She is currently recovering from a knee injury. 

Did you get the kick off the holiday season with Andreescu?
