Bianca Andreescu just won't stop. The new queen of Canadian tennis — Canadian sport, even — booked her place in the US Open quarter-finals in her first year in the main draw, becoming the first Canadian to reach the last eight at Flushing Meadows since 1992. What was the most impressive, however, was the fact she won out against a crowd which was largely and vocally against her.\nOf course, much of that anti-Andreescu sentiment came from the fact the prodigious 19-year-old was facing American favourite Taylor Townsend in New York.\nAnyone who's watched tennis before, whether in the US Open or London's Wimbledon, will tell you how partisan a crowd can be when one of their own is playing. The New York crowd warmed to that theme on Monday night.\nAndreescu doesn't seem a player who is fazed easily. In fairness, there's no reason she should be, given the 2019 season she's having.\nAnd so it proved, as she emerged victorious by a score 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 to advance to the US Open quarter-finals. It's another rung on the ladder of her incredible year.\nHowever, Andreescu herself acknowledged the difficulties of playing in that particular atmosphere after the game.\nAndreescu: "It was really fun other than the crowd being against me...It's definitely not an easy situation especially when they are cheering during my serve or saying double fault.."— Michael Gallo (@Galloots) September 3, 2019\nShe wasn't the only one who noticed.\nIt's fair to say the bias from the crowd certainly attracted the attention of many Canadian observers.\nFirst real adversity for Andreescu at the #usopen. Pressure on her to win this third set now, with majority of the pro-American crowd cheering against her.— Rob Williams (@RobTheHockeyGuy) September 3, 2019\nSpeaking of teens being emotionally roughed up, @Bandreescu_ said after match that hecklers were shouting "double fault" just b4 her 2nd serve. Is that done anywhere outside NY and/or US? And why didnt officials search out and toss these a**holes?— Peter O'Neil (@poneilinOttawa) September 3, 2019\nThat was a really rough environment for Andreescu. Not sure how much TV picked it up, but man the crowd was problematic.— Scott Stinson (@scott_stinson) September 3, 2019\nThe American announcers are obnoxiously homers. It’s as if Andreescu isn’t even on the court. #USOpen— Keith Baldrey (@keithbaldrey) September 3, 2019\n- Boo Novak Djokovic, despite retiring with a shoulder injury. - Yell “double fault” and “Let’s Go Taylor” during 🇨🇦 Bianca Andreescu’s serve. Just another day at the office with the @usopen crowd. #USOpen #USOpen2019 🎾— Lukas Weese (@Weesesports) September 3, 2019\nBianca Andreescu is an absolute boss. She’s got it all and she was able to keep it together tonight through a rough spot in the second set and a typical rude NYC night crowd that was against her.— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) September 3, 2019\nYoung American player on a roll. New York crowd rooting against her. Didn’t matter. You know why? Because she’s Bianca Andreescu. That’s why.— Sid Seixeiro (@Sid_Seixeiro) September 3, 2019\nBias from the spectators' seats is to be expected, particularly when a home-nation favourite is in action.\nAccording to some, though, even the American commentators were getting in on the action.\nYou know you are listening to US TV when the sports bias is now as strong as the pandering political bias. I thought the coverage by ESPN of Andreescu - Townsend was some sort of SNL parody, the way they talked down the Canadian and ignored fan catcalling during Bianca's serve.— Billius27 (@Billius27) September 3, 2019\nNo mistaking which country the broadcasters are paid by. Andreescu is coming off as the evil veteran 😳— Blake Price (@BlakePriceTSN) September 3, 2019\nBest way to motivate Andreescu right now would be to let her know that the commentators are openly rooting for Townsend— Josh (@GoldAndOrSmith) September 3, 2019\nThe divisive nature of the atmosphere and reaction to the game doesn't seem to have been shared by the two female players themselves, however.\nAt least, judging by this cute interaction they shared on Tuesday morning.\nThank you xx. Real recognize real ✊🏽 unreal tourney you had, first of many more!! https://t.co/oFrDUVvYLZ— Bianca (@Bandreescu_) September 3, 2019\nIn the end, Andreescu proved she has the ability and the mettle to overcome an adverse, even hostile, crowd.\nBianca Andreescu says the thing she learned tonight was how to deal with the adverse New York crowd. “I think I kept my cool. I think that's the one thing I learned today. If I just keep calm, I stay as positive as I can, I think the crowd can't beat me.” #usopen— WTA Insider (@WTA_insider) September 3, 2019\nAndreescu will play Belgian Elise Mertens in her quarter-final on Wednesday looking to power her way into the final four.\nHow the crowd will react to her then remains to be seen, but we can't imagine she'll care at all, to be honest.\n"I think the crowd can't beat me."\nInject that into our veins, Bianca.\nThere are stories everywhere.
