Williams falls short of grand slam record

Canada toasts'Queen B Andreescu after major triumph

Canadian Bianca Andreescu beat Serena Williams (6-3, 7-5) at the U.S. Open on Saturday, becoming the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.

Andreescu broke Williams' serve for the fourth time of the set to wrap up the win, making her the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam title and the first teenager to do so since Maria Sharapova at the 2006 US Open.

"I've been visualising ever since I was 12 or 13 when my incredible mother introduced me to it", she said. "And it's hard to know that you could do better", she told reporters after the match.

"She said afterwards she doesn't know what happens and the real Serena doesn't show up in the finals and that's what she's got to find the answer to".

The American had 33 winners but just as many unforced errors.

Andreescu insists she was not interested in earning huge amounts for herself, though, instead determined to secure enough in prize money to allow her parents to travel with her on the WTA Tour.

Requested what used to be potentially the most annoying half of the last to overcome, she spoke back: "Surely the crowd!" I have to kind of figure out how to get her to show up in Grand Slam finals.

Having started the year with just US$215,888 in career earnings, she has taken that amount to over US$6 million.

For Andreescu - born the year after Williams won her first major title at the U.S. Open - the victory capped an impressive run at this year's tournament. I'm going to say it again: "It's been a goal of mine to inspire many people, especially Canadian athletes", said Andreescu. What she's done off the court, too.

The match represented another hard loss for the 37-year-old Williams since her return to tennis last year after the birth of her daughter in 2017.

"I was feeling many, many things before the match, more than any other match".

"I will't bitch, this year has been a dream approach lawful and now being in a neighborhood to play on this stage against Serena, a lawful legend of the sport, is phenomenal". And I've just got to just keep fighting through it.

This was also her seventh win over top-10 opposition this year, with 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams chasing her own bit of history heading into last night's final. I could have played better.

"Since then, honestly I've been visualising it nearly every single day".

"Let's face it, she's got another four (Grand Slams) next year and the Olympics, I'm sure she'll want to do that, she loves playing at the Olympics".

"On Championship point at 5-1 down Serena hit a forehand victor and that was her first victor of the set", Whitaker said.
