Right after Andreescu defeated legendary Serena Williams in the final at Flushing Meadows, Mayor Bonnie Crombie, whose Twitter header picture is the one with the Canadian tennis ace, tweeted:

We are so proud of you! The key to the City of #Mississauga is yours forever ????????????

In addition, the City Council passed a by-law to name a street in Mississauga after the tennis star whose career has just begun. It will be called Andreescu Way.
