Andreescu was born in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, Ontario, to Romanian parents.

A few years later, the Andreescus returned to live in Canada, where Bianca trained at the Ontario Racquet Club in Mississauga. When she was 11 years old, she joined Tennis Canada's National Training Program in Toronto and started getting more serious about her career. Her favorite players are Simona Halep and Kim Clijsters.
