Canada’s finest wasted no time in showering their newest champion Bianca Andreescu with praise and adoration. From Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to two time NBA MVP Steve Nash, from the Vancouver Canucks to the Toronto Raptors, everyone has been showing Bibi the love.
There’s just one Toronto super-fan that hasn’t been accounted for. We’re looking at you, Drake.
“Champagne Papi I’m waiting for you!” Andreescu said jokingly when asked if there is any Canadian she hasn’t heard from yet.
Andreescu has embarked on a media frenzy after winning her first Grand Slam title last week in New York. She has appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The View, Live with Kelly and Ryan, and the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
She’s picked up tons of new fans—not just with her racquet, but with her relaxed, down-to-earth demeanor.
She even won over Whoopie Goldberg, a notoriously hardcore Serena fan, with her grace and humility.
On Live with Kelly and Ryan and Good Morning America, Andreescu revealed some of her mindfulness tactics, and everyone should take note. Her mother introduced her to meditation and visualization at a young age. “We create our reality with our mind,” Andreescu said to Robin Roberts, “our mind is one of most powerful tools that we have.”
Part of that reality for Andreescu was quite literally presenting herself with a US Open check she wrote to herself in 2015. Every year she kept increasing the number on the check to correspond with the increase in prize money.
.@Bandreescu_ tells @RobinRoberts she's been visualizing winning the #USOpen since she was 12 and she used to write fake winning checks to herself. "We create our reality with our mind," she said. https://t.co/MlhKp3cufX pic.twitter.com/tdNseZh3uz— Good Morning America (@GMA) September 9, 2019
Andreescu admits the media appearances have been hectic, but she’s not complaining.
“I could definitely get used to this feeling,” she said. “I’m not done yet.”
Maybe after a few more major titles Drake will take notice of Canada’s most overwhelming success.
