Maria Andreescu Husband (Nicu Andreescu)

Maria Andreescu husband and father Bianca Andreescu is Nicu Andreescu.  Nicu is an engineer who graduated from the Transilvania University of Brașov. The couple moved to Canada in 1994, and Bianca was born in 2000. But in 2006 Maria and Bianca moved to Romania for almost three years so mom could run a trucking business. As you do.

Maria Andreescu & Nicu are originally from Romania & Lived in Canada When Bianca Was Born

Maria Andreescu & Nicu live in Toronto, though they first met while they were studying in Romania according to The New York Times. They first moved to Toronto together in 1994. Bianca was born in Toronto in 2000.

According to Globe and Mail, Nicu said of their move to Canada, “We arrived in Canada with two suitcases and that’s all. We had a great first impression when we arrived, having come from a former communist country. We wanted to go to Canada and start a new life and have a better future for any kids we might have.”

Maria and Bianca moved to Romania for three years from 2006-2009 so that Maria could run a trucking business, according to Town and Country. Other publications report that all three family members moved home to Romania for those years.

It was during her time in Romania that young Bianca began to show a gift with the sport of Tennis, according to Forbes. When she and her parents returned to Canada a few years later, she started training competitively at Team Canada’s Under-14 National Training Center in Toronto.

Maria Andreescu Daughter (Bianca Andreescu)

Maria’s daughter, Bianca Andreescu was born on June 16th, 2000. She is a Canadian professional tennis player who reached a career-high singles ranking of No. 14 on August 12th, 2019, as ranked by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), and a career-high combined junior ranking of No. 3 on February 1, 2016, as ranked by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). On August 11th, 2019, Andreescu became the first Canadian woman to win the Canadian Open since Faye Urban in 1969. She is set to face Serena Williams for a chance to win her maiden Grand Slam on Saturday, September 7th, 2019.

Maria is a stoic, supportive presence in Bianca Tennis career. Her influence has clearly rubbed off on her daughter, who remains remarkably calm in high-pressure moments, a skill she says she owes to her mother having introduced her to creative visualization at a young age.

Just as Bianca will no doubt try to will herself to victory in Saturday’s final, fans of her mother will be hoping for, if not manifesting, another winning Maria Andreescu moment.

What does Bianca Andreescu say of her Mother

During her daughter’s quarterfinal match in the US opens against Elise Mertens on Wednesday night, September 4th the camera repeatedly cut to Maria in the stands—an imperturbable source of calm in oversize black sunglasses, big hair, and a Versace-Esque print top that read “Dog Queen” on the collar and which Maria accessorized with the family pooch, Coco, on her lap. At once covert and in your face, the overall effect suggested Edina Monsoon in the Witness Protection program.

“My mom’s honestly the coolest person I know,” Bianca said in a post-match interview. Same, said tennis stans all over social media, where Maria has emerged as a mood, a moment, a meme. Talk about #momgoals.

In an Instagram post, Andreescu wrote of her mother, “Without you, I don’t know what I’d do. But with you, I know there is nothing I can’t do. Happy birthday mom I love you sooo much?”

Bianca Andreescu US Open

At the 2019 US Open, Bianca advanced to the semifinals by beating Katie Volynets, Kirsten Flipkens, Caroline Wozniacki, Taylor Townsend, and Elise Mertens. Bianca defeated Belinda Bencic in straight sets to reach her maiden Grand Slam final, where she won against Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 on Saturday September 7th, 2019. She becomes the first Canadian to win a grand slam singles title.

Maria Andreescu Family Dog

During her daughter’s quarterfinal match in the US Open against Elise Mertens, cameras spotted Maria in the stands rocking some oversize black sunglasses, big hair, and a Versace top that read “Dog Queen” on the collar. Completing the look was Coco, the family dog who sat quietly on her lap. This sent fans on Twitter into a frenzy with many reacting to Maria’s outfit and Coco, the family dog.

In order to be in compliance with the rules at the U.S. Open, Coco has to technically remain on the floor. Nicu Andreescu said to The New York Times, “We had to keep our hands on her the whole time because she likes to jump up and watch.”

In spite of the rules, Coco has been seen on Maria’s lap on more than one occasion during Bianca’s matches — and most of Andreescu’s fans don’t seem to mind.
