Three years ago, that a 16-year-old Bianca Andreescu wrote herself a cheque.
That cheque has been a mock-up of this one awarded into the US Open winner.
But after beating the great Serena Williams 6-3 7-5 at Saturday’s compelling final, the composed Canadian is prepared to cash a genuine one value roughly #3.1m.
“I have been dreaming of this moment for the best time,” the 19-year-old stated of winning her first Grand Slam title, wiping away tears as the size of what she had just attained finally struck.
“For it to become a reality is crazy.”
Crazy is a word which Andreescu, like most teenagers, easily uses to describe circumstances that are unexpected and one that has cropped up regularly in her chats with all the media over the previous few days.
Perhaps not without good reason.
Struggling with trauma and twelve months ago, she lost in the very first round of qualifying at Flushing Meadows and has been ranked beyond the top 200 in the entire world.
But she has come to be among the very players on the planet following a rise this season.
Maria and andreescu, whose Spartan parents Nicu emigrated to Canada in the 1990s and six matches, had played with .
Since that time she has won prestigious WTA Premier titles in Indian Wells and Toronto, climbing to 15th in the world because of this and raking in #1.79m of her #1.97m livelihood prize money.
Now the profits are higher after becoming a Grand Slam champion: she will climb to fifth in the world, take home a winning trophy of #3.13m and, surely, become a confront recognized by most beyond the parameters of Canada and golfing.
“I never really thought of being famous. I’m not complaining though,” she smiled.
“My goals are to only win as many Grand Slams as possible, become number one on the planet. But the concept of fame not crossed my own mind.
“It’s been a crazy journey this year. I will get used to this atmosphere ”
And the prize money? “Do not ask me because I have no clue. I have never held that much money in my entire life!”
Succumbing to the trappings of wealth and fame at a youthful age appears unlikely for the teenager, who has been cultivated by daddy Nicu, an engineer, and mother Maria, a compliance officer for a fund company.
Maria herself has become a popular figure, especially among social media consumers, thanks to her striking look and as she brings Andreescu , Coco, to sit through games.
Andreescu, a single child, describes her as”the coolest person I know and my role model”.
She has her mother to thank you for helping develop the resilience which because Williams threatened to spoil her hopes, she had to block out a passionate home crowd at Flushing Meadows.
“I began meditating and visualising ever since I was 12 or 13 when my mum introduced me, and that I know it was not such a big thing back then, but today it’s getting more popular because I think whether you can control your head, then you’re able to control a great deal of items,” she explained.
“I feel that’s what’s been working very well for me personally. I kept doing that.
“When I am on the court in front of those big phases, I am really good at only blocking everything and staying in the zone”
Belief is not she struts on the court – on the Arthur Ashe Stadium in her first Grand – along with her head always up.
And that confidence dissipates at a marvellous game which has the choice to pull against enemies in addition to having a killer forehand rated as one of the best in the sport.
Williams, the 23-time Grand Slam champion rated as the greatest female player could not deal with the consistent depth of the teenager as she had been hustled out of a record-equalling significant.
“I feel as if Bianca plays well under stress. She goes and she plays hard,” the 37-year-old said.
“She does what she does best, and that’s move until the ball, that’s hit winners, that’s play with a whole lot of intensity.”
Andreescu had already earned six wins above top-10 players this season – Caroline Wozniacki, Elina Svitolina, Angelique Kerber (twice), Kiki Bertens and Karolina Pliskova – entering Saturday’s final.
And Williams, that led from their Rogers Cup in Toronto before the American retired with a back injury, became the latest victim.
This run to the US Open title implies Andreescu has won 14 straight matches and also an 45 of her 49 matches this year.
She’s the first teenager to lift Grand Slam singles title since Maria Sharapova won the 2006 US Open aged 19 and matched Monica Seles’ listing of winning a major at the Open era on only her fourth appearance in a Grand Slam main attraction.
Even though the increase of Andreescu was rapid, a year has also not been without its challenges.
She missed a large chunk of the year after suffering a shoulder injury in the Miami Open in March which, after an ill-judged effort to perform with the French Open, compelled her to miss the entire grass-court swing, which makes her swift ascent and powerful winning album even more notable.
“It is undoubtedly a practice of existence. You’re not likely to have ups all of the time,” she explained.
“So I think in those moments, you simply need to deal with it the best you can, which is to just keep fighting your fantasies and only stay as persistent and persevere as much as possible.
“I understand in these minutes you feel as if you can not.
“But if you believe there are great times ahead, then those difficult moments are certainly worth it. I believe you are built by it .
“I believe everyone should go through it as it just makes you stronger.”
