Bianca Andreescu has become the first Grand Slam champion from Canada after defeating Serena Williams by 6-3, 7-5 to clinch the US Open title on Saturday (local time). She has also become the first teenager to win a Grand Slam title in 13 years.
Andreescu did not allow Serena to get any momentum in the first set and wrapped up the first set 6-3. The second set was closely fought but Andreescu ended up winning it by 7-5 to clinch her maiden Grand Slam.
It may be mentioned here that this was Serena’s second US Open final defeat in a row. Last year, she was defeated by Naomi Osaka of Japan.
