Breaking: Bianca Andreescu beats Serena Williams to win US Open

A 19-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu has been crowned the US Open champion, after beating Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 for her first ever Grand Slam.

Bianca Andreescu came prepared, as she gave Serena Williams the taste of her own medicine, displaying so much power in her serving and hitting harder, all which were attributes of a typical Serena. But Serena Williams who was hoping to get her 24th could not cope with the energy of the 19-year-old Canadian, who took home her first Grand Slam, while spoiling the party for Serena Williams and friends.

Andreescu took charge early in the U.S. Open final, going up by a set and two breaks, then held off a late charge by Williams to win 6-3, 7-5 for the championship Saturday night.

This is the second year in a row that Williams has lost in the final at Flushing Meadows. This one had none of the controversy of 2018, when she got into an extended argument with the chair umpire while being beaten by Naomi Osaka.

Williams has now been the runner-up at four of the seven majors she has entered since returning to the tour after having a baby two years ago. The 37-year-old American remains stuck on 23 Grand Slam singles title, one shy of Margaret Court’s mark for the most in history.

Will Serena Williams ever equal and surpass the record, given that she keeps failing almost all the finals she has played, and all to younger opponents?

The 19-year-old Andreescu is the first woman to win the trophy at Flushing Meadows in her main-draw tournament debut in the Open era, which started in 1968 when professionals were allowed into Grand Slam tournaments. She only has participated in four majors in her brief career.
