Serena says her poor effort ´inexcusable´ in US Open final

  • Bianca Andreescu held her nerve to defeat six-time US Open champion Serena Williams in her first Grand Slam final

Williams was denied a record-equalling 24th Slam title as the 19-year-old Andreescu on Saturday became the youngest Grand Slam victor since Maria Sharapova at the 2006 US Open, when the Russian was 18.

Bianca Andreescu, of Canada, reacts after scoring a point against Serena Williams, of the United States, during the women's singles final of the U.S. Open tennis championships Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, in NY.

Serena Williams branded her performance in the US Open final "inexcusable" and said it was the "worst match" she played during the tournament.

It was 5-1 Andreescu, and with the match on Andreescu's racquet, Williams hit a victor to save one championship point.

The No. 8-seeded Williams won her first U.S. Open title here 20 years ago - before Andreescu was born.

"My goals have been to just win as many grand slams as possible, to become number one in the world", she said. I think her returns make me play better and put pressure on my serve.

With a raucous crowd vociferously on her side, most would have expected her to go on and take the set along with a prospective decider to finally end her wait for No. 24.

"I never thought it would be this hectic, but I'm not complaining", she told Good Morning America. I'm not necessarily chasing a record.

The 19-year-old also caught the eye of her home country's high-profile athletes with fellow tennis player Genie Bouchard calling the victory "Canadian history". "It's not always going to be butterflies and rainbows, so I just tried to embrace it as much as I could". "I think that's kind of been a little helpful".

But the 23-time Grand Slam champion showed fight late in the match. "Hopefully, I guess, may the best player win". "You continue to inspire all of us", Stephens said. "I think she's a great girl".

It's the richest purse in all of the Grand Slams in tennis. She is also the first teenager to win a Slam since Maria Sharapova at the Open in 2006. She's ending it a Grand Slam champion. It's easier playing on the big courts, I know Beth loves it, playing in front of lots of people and she played an incredible match. "And it's hard to know that you could do better", said Williams, 37, as reported by People. I know they can't always travel.

"SHE THE CHAMP!" tweeted the Raptors, alongside a jersey with Andreescu's name on the back.

And Saturday's visualization session, where she saw herself defeating American superstar Serena Williams for the U.S. Open championship, worked especially well.

She added that she had visualised playing against Williams in the final.

French-language newspaper Le Journal De Montreal crowned Andreescu the new queen with its "La Nouvelle Reine" headline, which featured a full-page photo of her on court kissing the US Open trophy.
