Canadian youngster Bianca Andreescu has won the final of the Rogers Cup in Toronto. She won the title after Serena Williams retired with a back injury. This is a hard time for her as she is still looking to win her first title since returning to competition in 2018.
Bianca won the WTA title at Indian Wells earlier this year. She won the final game against Angelique Kerber in three tight sets. Additionally, she became the first Canadian to win the Rogers Cup women’s singles title since 1969.
