New York: An outstanding victory was brought in by Bianca Andreescu against Serena Williams to become Canada’s first Grand Slam champion 6-3, 7-5 to clinch her maiden US Open title.
The 19-year-old Andreescu has now become the youngest Grand Slam champion since Maria Sharapova.
Andreescu displayed an aggressive display in the first set on the tennis court, without giving any momentum to American tennis player Serena Williams. She wrapped up the first set 6-3.
In the second set, both the players closely fought as they went back and forth, but Andreescu ended up winning the second set 7-5 to clinch her maiden US Open title.
“This year has been a dream come true,” Andreescu told the crowd. “I am beyond grateful and truly blessed. I’ve worked really hard for this moment. To play on this stage against Serena – a true legend of the sport – is amazing.”
This defeat has brought Serena a second loss in the US Open final in a row. She was defeated at the 2018 US Open Final by Japan’s Naomi Osaka.
