The triumph today is the biggest in a career whose trajectory is soaring and Bianca Andreescu’s tennis career took another huge leap forward with the tournament victory this afternoon.
Bianca Andreescu ranked 60th in the world before the Paribas Open has climbed to 24th with her win today.
Andreescu’s path to this tournament included a title at the Challenger Series event in Newport Beach in January.
On Friday she recorded her fifth win over a top-20 player in her career, a total that includes her victories at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden over No. 18 Qiang Wang in the round of 16 and No. 20 Garbine Muguruza in a 6-0, 6-1 rout in the quarterfinals.
She has won 27 matches this season at all levels, the most of any player this year.
The victory is good for tennis and good for Mississauga tennis.
