  • Teen champion Bianca Andreescu goes from misery to victory in a year

Canadian Bianca Andreescu beat Serena Williams (6-3, 7-5) at the U.S. Open on Saturday, becoming the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.

Bianca Andreescu had a meteoric rise this year, after starting the season ranked 150th in the world.

The fact that the 37-year-old has now made it to four grand slam finals and come up short all four times speaks volumes. "I'm, like, so close, so close, so close, yet so far away", Williams said. "I gotta keep fighting through it".

Chances are, she'll do fine in the future.

Just ask Williams' coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, who referred to Andreescu as a "future No. 1". "I'm just trying to win Grand Slams", she said.

She revealed one of her techniques had been to spend years picturing herself triumphing, determined to turn her wishes into reality.

"She said afterwards she doesn't know what happens and the real Serena doesn't show up in the finals and that's what she's got to find the answer to". I have to do better.

"And yet, I don't know about you, [but] I never really thought Andreescu wasn't going to win it because she was so the superior tennis player".

Her journey from injury to victory felt all the more rewarding, after last year's qualifying defeat left her feeling particularly low and languishing outside the world's top 200.

Meanwhile, Williams admitted her frustration after losing back-to-back finals on Arthur Ashe but insisted she is not completely fixated on Margaret Court's elusive record of 24 major titles.

A search of Zhang's Palm Beach hotel room reportedly uncovered a device meant to detect hidden cameras and almost $8,000 in cash. Prosecutors said among the electronics Zhang possessed were numerous USB drives and a device that could detect secret cameras.

A tournament official even had to show her which side of the trophy is the front. "It's definitely frustrating, but for the most part I just am still here".

"I think being on the court is nearly a little bit more relaxing than hanging out with a 2-year-old that's dragging you everywhere", Williams told USA Today after a commanding semifinals performance against Ukraine's Elina Svitolina on Thursday.

"I guess I've got to keep going if I want to be a professional tennis player".

Bianca Andreescu was congratulated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after her stunning US Open victory over Serena Williams.

And at that point, the crowd no longer mattered.

"We The North" - the Raptors' slogan - has given way to "She The North". "Bianca played a wonderful match". Impressed by her rival's sportsmanship after the match, Williams called Andreescu an "old soul".

"She could have been a little bit intimidated for many reasons". I think her returns make me play better and put pressure on my serve.

"I'm not used to this", he said.

But Andreescu still had enough in the tank to get over the line.
