Canada’s teenage tennis sensation Bianca Andreescu has quickly become one of the biggest names in women’s tennis.
While there’s no doubt the spotlight was directly on Bianca during her win at the US Open, her mother Maria also managed to accumulate a cult following on Twitter thanks to her spectacular outfits and calm demeanor in the stands.
How do you stay calm when your daughter is playing like this at the #USOpen ??
Bianca’s mom: Are you dumb look at me.

Bianca Andreescu is through to the semis at the US Open, but I'm all about her Mom. I can only assume it is a Canadian tribute to be rocking the sunglasses at night. I can only hope she tops this outfit for the next game. And @kateberlant will play her in the TV movie. pic.twitter.com/tbXGjw8Ddi— haddylikestunes (@haddylikestunes) September 5, 2019
Despite her reserved nature when watching her daughter in action, Maria is without a doubt proud of her 19-year-old, evident by her personal Instagram account, which is almost made up entirely with photos of Bianca.
It also appears the two have a great relationship.
Bianca recently posted an adorable birthday post to her mom with the caption "Without you, I don't know what I'd do. but with you there is nothing I can't do."
During the US Open, Bianca also responded to the social media hype surrounding her mom, posting "This is actually hilarious. My mom's a straight G. I'll never be that cool." to a photo of the ever-glamorous Maria on Twitter.

The Andreescu family story is a compelling one as well, with Maria and Nicu arriving in Canada as Romanian immigrants 1994 and six years before Bianca was born.
