US Open Champion Bianca Andreescu Gets Customised WWE Belt
Bianca Andreescu, a Canadian teenager and the new US Open Champion, took to Twitter on Friday to flaunt a recently received customised World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Championship belt. The US Open winner tweeted a picture of her enigmatic self with the belt writing, “Thank you @WWE for the gift!! Who trynna square up?”
- Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu beat Serena Williams in the US Open final
- Now Bianca received customised World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Championship belt
- Serena Williams lost another final, second US Open final in a row. In her fourth major final since childbirth two years ago, the ace tennis star was looking for a history-making 24th major title
- Serena sailed into another Grand Slam final, if won that would have also meant breaking Chris Evert’s record of 101 U.S. Open wins, and her record of six U.S. Open title championships
- 19-year-old Bianca fought for her first Slam final, defeated 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 to win the $3.85 million top prize.
Andreescu became the first Canadian ever to win the US Open. She defeated Serena Williams in straight sets this month.
This comes after Triple H asked both the Men’s and Women’s US Open winners on Twitter to show off the custom WWE Championships that will be sent to each of them.
Taking to Twitter, Triple H had posted an image of the Women’s Championship belt and written, “Her first appearance in the @USOpen… Her first grand slam title…The first Canadian to win the #USOpen…And now her first @WWE Raw Women’s Championship to celebrate! Congrats @Bandreescu_! #SheTheNorth.”
At the US Open, Bianca fought for her first ever Slam final as the 19-year-old defeated 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 to win the $3.85 million top prize.
This was Serena’s second US Open final in a row. She was defeated by Naomi Osaka in 2018.
Bianca ran past Belinda Bencic to set up a highly-anticipated final with Serena Williams, the oldest Grand Slam finalist in the Open era. The teenager has already won titles at Indian Wells and Toronto during her breakout 2019 season. She only has eight major match wins to her name, six of them coming in this year’s event at Flushing Meadows.
Bianca, 19, was not even born when Williams, 37, appeared in her first Slam final.
“I believe I could have played better,” Serena said. “I believe I could have done more. I believe I could have just been more Serena today. I honestly don’t think Serena showed up. I have to kind of figure out how to get her to show up in Grand Slam finals.”
Serena’s semi-final win helped her equal Chris Evert’s record of 101 wins. On the other hand, after the victory, Bianca achieved a career-best fifth in the world rankings, matching the best-ever mark by a Canadian woman set by Eugenie Bouchard in 2014.
