Bianca Andreescu won her first Grand Slam in her first appearance at the event, she was born nine months after Serena Williams won her first US Open title in 1999. She became the first teenager to win the title since Maria Sharapova of Russia (19 years, 132 days) won the US Open title in 2006.
Serena Williams failed to win her 7th US Open and 24th Grand Slam title which could have tied her with one of the greatest of all time Margaret Court (24 titles).
“I was feeling many, many things before the match, more than any other match. In the finals, playing Serena. I just tried to breathe as much as I could from the moment I woke up until the match. I tried to just do that throughout the whole match, to just keep my nerves in place,” Andreescu said. “It wasn’t easy at all, but I think that’s what I’ve been doing really well throughout this whole year.”
She will be World No. 5 from Monday with the victory.
