SOT, Bianca Andreescu, Winner of 2019 US Open: "This is crazy, this is crazy. I never thought I would have my own parade before, let alone the key to the city and a street named after me.

SOT, Bianca Andreescu, Winner of 2019 US Open: "I did not get here overnight. There has been a lot of hard work and sweat that went into it, a lot of dedication, a lot of downs, a lot of ups, but I made sure to stay very positive in those tough times. I know it's so easy to say but I truly love this sport, I'm very passionate and I have really big dreams so I'm really glad I never gave up because I wouldn't be standing here with everyone. So all I can say is, if I can do it, if Serena [Williams] can do it, if Roger [Federer] can do it, if the Raptures can do it, so can you."
