After winning the US Open and enjoying a media whirlwind in New York City, Bianca Andreescu returned home to Mississauga to a hero's welcome.
Her home city lies on the lakefront just south of Toronto in Ontario. In front of 10,000 fans, Andreescu received a key from the major, a street named in her honor and a parade.
After the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championships and made #WeTheNorth popular, the hashtag #SheTheNorth has exploded for Andreescu. Canada was more than ready to welcome home their first-ever singles Grand Slam champion.
The country's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was on hand for the celebrations.
The teenager also gets her own official day with September 16 being dubbed Bianca Andreescu Day in the city of Mississauga.
The world No. 5 pulled out of this week's WTA International in Tokyo.
