Bianca Andreescu upsets Serena Williams at U.S. Open Final

Nineteen-year-old Bianca Andreescu defeated Serena Williams in two sets at the U.S. Open’s Final Saturday. Andreescu is the first Canadian — man or woman — to win a major single’s championship. 

Williams didn’t go down without a fight: after being down 5-1, in the second set, she rallied to win the next four games. But it wasn’t enough to take down Andreescu, who won the next two games and win the set 7-5. 

In the final of the Canadian Open last month, Andreescu won after Williams retired with an injury in the first set. The match is best remembered for Andreescu — who hadn’t yet been born the first time Williams won the U.S. Open in 1999 — consoling the top player of this generation and letting Williams know just how much of an influence she has been, CBS Sports reports
