Serena Williams retires to hand the title to Bianca Andreescu — WTA Toronto

Sofia Kenin

To add to the storybook stuff, Andreescu grew up not far from the stadium in Mississauga, Ont. The American won the last of her 72 singles titles in the 2017 Australian Open.

Andreescu then turned her back to cameras to point to the slogan on the back of her sweatshirt laughing "I'm going to 'just do it!'"

Andreescu has been labelled a fun player to watch thanks to her energetic and aggressive style. Andreescu is 1-1 in career final appearances.

"I try to channel that pressure into something good", said Andreescu. I mean, before situations or scenarios happen, I'm pretty anxious.

It was a jarring and shocking end to a match so many were anticipating.

Bianca Andreescu and Serena Williams meet in the final of the 2019 tennis Rogers Open.

Of course, the crowds weren't the problem for the three-time Rogers Cup victor on Sunday.

Williams was the first to address the crowd.

"She just did everything well, she had a really good game plan and she was moving great", said Williams.

For now, one more victory will do just fine, thank you very much.

According to the report, there have been leaks regarding the camera sensor, the battery and the display of the devices. Google Pixel users who have long endured battery issues are now faced with a new problem concerning the cameras.

The crowd cheered as Williams continued. "Bianca, you're a great sportswoman". "We'll see how it goes".

"Serena you made me cry. I've been through so much the last year with injury so I am so sorry she had to go out this way", the 19-year-old said during the trophy ceremony. "It's not easy", Andreescu began. "I've had many, many tough matches", said Andreescu, who opened the week with an emotional three-set win over compatriot Eugenie Bouchard and played three more three-setters. You are truly a champion. "I know how she feels because I've done that many times in my short career".

The two showered each other with respect.

"She's distraught", one TV commentator said as the crowd let out an audible gasp after the umpire announced the match was over.

"What I've been through the past two months has not been easy", Andreescu said. "She's an old soul". Her words on the court.

All that play time after a lengthy layoff took its toll on Andreescu, who needed a medical timeout in the second set for treatment on her groin.

It took just 19 minutes for the 19-year-old to become the first Canadian in 50 years to capture the Rogers Cup. "I haven't really thought about anything other than this win".

Earlier, both players showed impeccable defence, leading to long rallies, none better than the one capped when Andreescu ripped a victor off the net cord to rouse the crowd. "This been a dream come true, really". "I kept telling myself 'never give up'". She holds victories over seven of the top 10 players in the world this season, including Williams.

Now ranked World No.27, just off of her career-high of No.22, Andreescu will be rewarded for her success with a Top 20 debut in the WTA Rankings on Monday. She'll wake up tomorrow ranked 14th, the highest-ranked teenager on Earth. "And she's a girl, so hopefully it inspires more girls in Canada".

'I tried to embrace it as much as I can'.
