The Future star in world women’s tennis competitions it’s a Romanian Girl!

Bianca ANDREESCU was born and lives in Ontario, Canada.

She started playing tennis for the first time at age 7 in Pitești under Gabriel Hristache when Bianca and her family moved to her parents’ native country of Romania.

At her first event of the year, at the ASB Classic in Auckland, Andreescu qualified for the main draw. She then beat the first seed Caroline Wozniacki, the sixth seed Venus Williams, and the third seed Hsieh Su-wei en route to reach her first WTA singles final[45] where she was the runner-up to the defending champion and second seed Julia Görges.[46] At the Australian Open, she qualified and progressed to the main draw when Tereza Smitkova retired in the final round of the qualifying match.[47]

Andreescu won her first WTA 125K title at Newport Beach in January.[48] The win took her to a career-high ranking of No. 68. She also passed Eugenie Bouchard to become Canada’s top-ranked player.[49] In February she reached the semi-final of the Mexican Open, losing to Sofia Kenin.[50] After this result, Andreescu reached new career high ranking as No. 60.[51]

Andreescu has had a breakout tournament at the Indian Wells Premier Mandatory event. She started slow with a three set victory over Irina Camelia Begu, followed by straight sets wins over 32nd seed and former top five player Dominika Cibulkova, qualifier Stefanie Vögele and 18th seeded Wang Qiang to reach the quarterfinals in her Premier Mandatory debut. She dismissed former world No. 1 and two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza in straight sets to become the third wildcard to reach the semifinals of the tournament, joining Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters.[52] She then defeated the 6th seeded Elina Svitolina in three sets to make it through to the final, becoming the first wildcard to reach the finals in Indian Wells history. In the final, she won in three tight sets over Angelique Kerber for her first tour victory. ?
