Bianca Andreescu added one more trophy to her 2019 resume when she became the first tennis player to earn the Lou Marsh Trophy and be named Canada’s athlete of the year.

The 19-year-old accepted the award at Runnymede Collegiate Institute and it’s a moment she will never forget.

The Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent a message on behalf of all Canadians.

The legendary Billie Jean King even sent a shout out to the Canadian.

Right after receiving the news, Andreescu explained to Team Canada what it meant to win this award. Must-watch content!

Here are more reactions to her amazing achievement!

On another note – Andreescu was also awarded the WTA Newcomer of the Year. So many trophies so little time.
