When the U.S. Open began in late August, hopes were high for some Canadian tennis players. On the women’s side, Bianca Andreescu was hoping to represent her country with pride. She was given the best odds of any Canadian – male or female – to win the U.S. Open singles title. Despite being the leader in that distinction, though, she was still a long-shot to grab what would be the first singles Grand Slam tennis title by any Canadian in history. But that’s exactly what she did. Battling through multiple rounds of competition in preliminary rounds over the two-week tournament, Andreescu claimed the country’s first Grand Slam singles tennis title in history, defeating a legend, Serena Williams, in the final. Bettors who backed Andreescu at the outset of the tournament, and even in the U.S. Open final, were extremely happy with the way she performed.
