Talking about the women’s singles final of US Open 2019, teenager Bianca Andreescu produced a bold and brilliant performance to secure a straight-sets 6-3, 7-5 win and deny former world number one Williams from a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title.
With the win, Andreescu has jumped to a career-high fifth in the world rankings a year after sitting outside the top 200 when she was an unknown quantity to most in her home country. Also, this was Serena’s fourth loss in a Grand Slam final since making a comeback after the birth of her daughter.
