in her first ever Grand Slam final defeats Sererna Williams in straight sets. It's the first tennis GS win by a Canadian ever and a moment of tremendous national pride up here. Especially after the Raptors win in the NBA final. Nineteen years old and ranked 153 last year - she didn't even qualify for the US Open last year. Hasn't been done since back in what, the 30's? She's a really nice kid and it's a great story.
Bianca Andreescu broke Serena Williams' serve six times to win the US Open title in her first career appearance at the event. Williams, meanwhile, remains stuck on 23 Grand Slam titles.
