U.S. Open: Bianca Andreescu beat Serena Williams in final

Bianca Andreescu on Saturday night defeated Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 in the U.S. Open women’s final.

Andreescu, 19, set a record to be the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.

Serena, 37, was playing for her 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would have tied Margaret Court’s all-time record. But she failed in that bid again.

Andreescu won the first set when Williams double-faulted with the young Canadian holding advantage.

The second set was quite tense as the American tennis legend attempted a spirited fightback. But, in the end, it was the young Canadian that prevailed.
