    WOW Bianca. I'm speechless and in complete awe of what she pulled off. Amazing and congrats to Canada on their first ever Grand Slam champ. WOW again.

    All my life I was waiting for this watching the game, had some false hopes and hopes dashed but Bianca is such a tiger with the game to match. And what a way to do it eh? at the U.S open against the great Serena..........................wow.

    Serena looked done at the end, but it's because she threw everything she had at Bianca, who was able to handle it.

    This goes down as one of these bigger sports accomplishment by a Canadian athlete, and she's only just started.

    Bianca doesn't look as happy as I would expect. She seems overwhelmed

    I forgot about the money. 3.8 million clams. That's like winning a lottery.

    Bianca played fantastically and recovered well after that 5-5 hiccup. Though it's quite annoying that no commentator can pronounce her last name correctly

    First three tournament wins: Indian Wells, Toronto and the US Open. Record against top ten players: 8-0. It's like we are living in her fantasy.

    I think Serena genuinely likes and respects Bianca. It started in Toronto and has continued ever since. She sees a mirror version of herself.

    Now if we could only get our own basketball players in the N.B.A to actually show up and represent their country at the big international events, we have the 2nd most amount of N.B.A players after the U.S but do you think we can get those spoiled brats to show up and give us better results there?

    Not yet.

    And who can blame her. It's going to take time to absorb what she just did.

    Really, I like it.

    Also Chris Evert is 64 years old and looks 40, and is in great shape, holy cow!!!

    She'll probably be #3 by the end of the season. She's only a couple of hundred points behind 3rd ranked player and Bianca has almost no points to defend.
