In what’s surely been a whirlwind of a past eight days for US Open winner Bianca Andreescu, the Canadian tennis phenom capped off her championship celebration on Sunday with a rally in her hometown of Mississauga, Ontario.
Fans packed the city’s Celebration Square to show their support and pride for the 19-year-old. Joining in on the festivities was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who thanked Andreescu’s parents, Maria and Nicu, for choosing Canada. The two are originally from Romania.

Earlier in the week it was announced that the city will name a street after Andreescu, and on Sunday, the sign was unveiled at the rally.
And to cap off the event, the first-ever Canadian Grand Slam event winner was given a key to the city of Mississauga.
Add this rally onto numerous notable congratulations, an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, a customized WWE championship title, and a prompted shout out from Drake, and I’d say Andreescu has received a champions reception.
