Mississauga's Bianca Andreescu "She The North" Rally might not have had the turnout that was expected, but it was apparent that the crowd was excited to see the young tennis star.

Andreescu, in her U.S. Open debut, powered through the draw, knocking off former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, crowd favorite Taylor Townsend and No. 13 seed Belinda Bencic en route to the final.

Crombie and Andreescu then unveiled the street sign for Andreescu Way, which had been previously promised by Mississauga's mayor. The permanent location of the street has yet to be determined.

"Your most graceful and modest approach toward embracing your successes has embodied the values of both Mississauga, Ontario and Canada". "And your family is like so many others in Mississauga, a true immigrant success story". Among the throng was a group of Romanian Canadians carrying Romanian flags and another fan with a large painting of the tennis star.

Given that her stock has risen astronomically post her dominant display in NY last week, many fans were hoping to catch the Canadian star in action in Osaka this week. She returned to Mississauga a few years later and joined the Ontario Racquet Club.

"I'm really glad I never gave up because I wouldn't be standing here with everyone", Andreescu said.

Diversity and youth were defined themes of the rally.

Her rise has been another source of pride for Canadian sports fans, who saw the Toronto Raptors claim the National Basketball Association championship in June.

Hundreds of people gathered at Celebration for the "She the North" rally.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in the midst of campaigning for second term, was also on hand.

"She's an inspiration to all Canadians old and young", Trudeau said. "She is the embodiment of the fact that young people are not the leaders of tomorrow, they are the leaders of today", Trudeau said.

The 19-year-old became the first ever Canadian Grand Slam singles champion with her win over tennis legend Serena Williams on Saturday, Sept. 7 at the U.S. Open.

The victory has made her an worldwide star, appearing on USA television shows as a Canadian representative.

Despite there being so many big names up on that stage, there was only one champion. "It's about how she handled the win".

"I think we saw in the aftermath of her winning that she was somebody that all Canadians would want to represent us".

A sport that was already growing in popularity, Andreescu's victory has only pushed the interest of youths wanting to take up tennis.

"Bianca Andreescu, you are a hometown girl, but you are Canada's champion and we are so proud of you", Crombie said. "From large cities and small communities, all wanting to know how and where they can start playing tennis". Her parents, Maria and Nicu, attended the event along with their daughter's toy poodle, Coco. Raonic was born in Montenegro. Shortly afterward, Andreescu was given the key to the city. "Because in this country, anything is possible and you and many Mississaugans have proven it".
