Tennis / US Open.- Young Canadian tennis player Bianca Andreescu conquered this Saturday the US Open, fourth and last ‘Grand Slam’ of the season, thanks to her victory in the final 6-3 and 7-5 over the American Serena Williams, who for her part The match of the Australian legend Margaret Court remained unmatched again.
At 37 and number 8 of the WTA world rankings, Williams lost another new opportunity to add the 24th ‘big’ title to his long record. For greater inri, it happened to the American as in the 2018 edition in this championship, when she gave in to the Japanese Naomi Osaka in the final match to be champion.
This defeat against Andreescu meant, in addition, the fourth final of a ‘big’ tournament that Williams loses consecutively, after those of Wimbledon and US Open in 2018, alongside that of Wimbledon this year at the hands of the Romanian Simona Halep (6-2 and 6-2).
The particular curse of the Yankee player had another chapter in front of a grown Andreescu, able to win the ‘fat’ award despite being a debutante this year at Flushing Meadows. With 19 years old, he put the icing on the fairy tale by targeting in his first final of ‘Grand Slam’.
And he did, in addition, intimidating from the beginning. He broke the serve of his opponent in the opening rally, on the first occasion and on track a set that was faster than expected. Both players solidly maintained their services until the seventh game, very long and in which Williams saved up to five ‘break points’.
The tables could change immediately, when the American enjoyed a break ball in the eighth game; however, the Canadian showed improper temper of her age and saved the ballot, then break another rival serve and add the first sleeve to her locker.
The Arthur Ashe stadium jumped at the home, but she looked blurred by a Andreescu on a roll. In a seen and unseen, the Ontario was placed with 5-1 and serve in favor; at 40-30, Williams pundonor grabbed a game that slipped quickly and broke the service.
Then began a comeback comeback, with Andreescu being overcome by the long and varied ‘drives’ of his opponent. Fully involved in the twelfth game, Michigan’s failed in its intentions at the most inopportune moment, which ran into the stands and predicted another ‘match point’.
Although he saved him, Andreescu did not give up his efforts and earned a third option to close the set, the duel and the title for his still half-empty showcases. And so he did, with a strong parallel and that left a Serena Williams nailed again without historical record of ‘great’.
