Serena Williams' agony in the US Open final continued with Canadian teen Bianca Andreescu beating the 2018 runners-up and crowd favourite Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 in US Open 2019 final to clinch maiden Grand Slam title. Bianca Andreescu became Canada's first Grand Slam singles champion on Saturday with a rollercoaster win over 23-time major champion Serena Williams in the US Open final.
