Serena William experience another painful defeating again under the hands of Bianca Andreescu. This is her first Grand Slam title
On Saturday evening in New York city, Andreescu, defeated Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 to become Canada’s first ever Grand Slam singles champion.
Her dream has finally come through.
Bianca Andreescu: I’ve dreamed of this moment for a really, really, really, really long time. And having it become a reality is just so surreal.
Years ago, Bianca Andreescu wrote her name and the prize money for winning the US Open on a mock-up check.
She was 16 at the time and harbored ambitions of reaching the pinnacle of her sport. The check served as motivation, driving a hope that one day she would get her hands on the real thing.
On Saturday evening in New York, she did just that, defeating Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 to become Canada’s first ever Grand Slam singles champion.
“After I won the Orange Bowl back in 2015, a couple of months later I just felt like I could do really big things in this sport,” Andreescu told CNN after her US Open victory.
“So, I just grabbed a check and wrote the prize money of that year. But every year I kept increasing it because it kept changing. But I just kept visualizing that moment since that day.
“Now being the actual champion is just so crazy.”
