Bianca Andreescu's hometown of Mississauga, Ont., as well as neighbouring Toronto, are eager to hold celebrations for the Canadian tennis star.

It is not yet known if there will be any public event to honour the recently crowned U.S. Open women’s champion, however. Mayor Bonnie Crombie confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the City of Mississauga had been in touch with Andreescu’s representatives to organize some sort of celebration.

"I’ve just been seeing everything on social media but damn, if that happens, that would be so crazy," said Andreescu, Canada’s first Grand Slam tennis singles champion. "I was not expecting any of this. But I can get used to it. It’s been pretty cool."

Mississauga city council passed several motions on Wednesday to honour Andreescu, including giving her the key to the city, naming a tennis court in the Churchill Meadows section of the city, and naming a street after Andreescu, with Crombie tweeting a picture of an "Andreescu Way" street sign.

"In the letter, the mayor explained that the City of Toronto is pleased to help celebrate her win in any way that she would like," said Don Peat, spokesperson for Tory.

Andreescu is not expected to return to tournament play until the Beijing Open starts on Sept. 28.
