Bianca Andreescu is Canada's athlete of the year

It's been quite the year for Tennis star Bianca Andreescu. From claiming the championship title at the US Open and Rogers Cu[, where she defeated Serena Williams to win both titles, to being awarded the 2019 Lou Marsh Trophy as Canada’s athlete of the year.

The news of Andreescu's newest accolade broke on Monday afternoon, and people are not surprised that the 19 year old from Mississauga was chosen as this year's winner. 

In fact, she was unanimously chosen as this years winner by a committee of Canadian sports journalists.

Former Olympian and current Member of Parliament for Milton, Adam Koeverden was among those who congratulated Andreescu on her achievement.

Many were quick to point out how quickly Andreescu shot to stardom, starting 2019 needing to qualify for the year's first slam. 

Andreescu's big year earned her the title of She the North, and even has a street in Mississauga named after her. 

To say Canada is proud of Andreescu would be an understatement.
