In two sets of fantastic tennis, 19-year-old, Canadian fifteen-seed Bianca Andreescu (pictured above) defeated American eight-seed and reigning US Open Champion Serena Williams, becoming the 2019 US Open Champion. The score 6-3, 7-5.

With this win, Andreescu became the first Canadian woman to win a Grand Slam title in the Open Era. She also continues to hold an undefeated record against top 10 players in 2019.

Andreescu on what this win means to her:

“It’s been a goal of mine to inspire many people, especially Canadian athletes. I think that this win will hopefully do that, not only this win but just what I’ve accomplished this past year because so many Canadian athletes have paved the way for me when I was young.”

“Hopefully, I can be that person to them.”

A BIG-TIME QUOTE
