Data company SEMrush reported that in total, #SheTheNorth was used a whopping 23,062 times on Sept. 7, the day of Andreescus Grand Slam win. The numbers showed a 13,387% increase from its incarnation on Sept. 5.
Looks like Mississauga has wasted no time in making “She The North” a tangible reality. The city will be hosting a gathering for everyones favourite Canadian tennis star, Bianca Andreescu. The Bianca Andreescu rally in Mississauga will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, at Celebration Square near Burnhamthorpe Road West and Confederation Parkway.Officials will present the tennis pro with a key to the city and will also unveil the citys Andreescu Way street sign.
According to public relations agency Punch Canada Inc., Google searches for hot photos of Bianca Andreescu have also skyrocketed by 5,337% since June.
Based on Googles top autofill searches, its clear that Canadians want to be in the loop on Biancas life. Such as the details of her brief public moment with Drake. Andreescu jokingly called the rapper out for not congratulating her during her appearance on The Tonight Show. Drizzy eventually got back to Bianca shooting her a heartfelt Instagram DM.
People are also asking Google if Biancas vegan. The answer to that isnt clear, however, she did sign an endorsement deal with Montreal-based vegan restaurant chain Copper Branch, so its certainly possible.
Also, people are curious about her relationship status. “Bianca Andreescu boyfriend” and “Is Bianca Andreescu single” are among the top searches.
Of course, many Google searches are also made about Biancas mom Maria Andreescu, who is somewhat of an internet sensation at this point. People are also Googling Biancas adorable dog Coco, who is often seen perched on Marias lap at Biancas games.
As with any public figure or celebrity, curiosity and interest in their personal lives are expected and sadly, creepy Google searches are inevitable.
As for Andreescu, its clear that she has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. She is already eyeing the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and her participation is sure to bring her even more international attention.
I’ve started getting messages from people saying that they’ve never watched tennis before, but now they will, which is pretty cool. I’ve gotten somewhere they actually started playing tennis because of me. That’s amazing, and I’m really humbled."
At a public rally set for Sunday afternoon, the teenage tennis star will be given a key to the city, while officials will also unveil an "Andreescu Way" street sign (although the street itself has yet to be selected).
Andreescu also added: "One of my goals was to be an inspiration for many people. I think I’m starting to do that, which means a lot to me. If I step on the court and I show a good example, I think it can drive a lot of people to maybe even pick up a racquet.
"Mississauga is planning the biggest tribute possible for our local hometown champion," said Mayor Bonnie Crombie in an interview on Friday.
Andreescu, 19, has been basking in her U.S. Open victory since touching down in Canada this week — even fielding a message from Drake.
She's had a meteoric rise over the last year, culminating in her win against Serena Williams this past Saturday. She also beat Williams in early August to take the Rogers Cup.
On Sunday, her fans are invited to Celebration Square in Mississauga for a public rally at 4:30 p.m., which Crombie predicts could draw as many as 30,000 people.
"People are brimming with pride," she said. "This is our hometown girl. She was born and raised [here], attended elementary school here, trained at our very own Ontario Racquet Club."
A DJ and percussionist group will play until 5 p.m., at which point Andreescu, Crombie and other GTA mayors, including Toronto Mayor John Tory, will take the stage. More details are here.
