Bianca Andreescu, the young tennis player from Canada, upset number eight, and one of the best players in athletic history, Serena Williams. Williams attempted at yet another Grand Slam Title at 2019 US Open Tennis Finals, to make history in her own way.

However, the nineteen year old from Canada, put a halt to  Serena’s bid for a 24th Grand Slam title to equal the 46-year-old record held by Margaret Court, made history in a number of ways Saturday. Andreescu is the first-ever Canadian man or woman to win a major singles tournament in the history of tennis. She is also the first teen to win the championship since Maria Sharapova won at the age of seventeen in 2006 in Wimbledon.

Bianca is also the only Grand Slam winner born in the 2000s and only the third woman ever to reach a major final in her debut appearance. Andreescu in statement said “It’s so hard to explain in words, but I’m just beyond grateful and truly blessed. I’ve worked really, really hard for this moment. This year has been a dream come true and now being able to play on this stage against Serena, a true legend of this sport, is amazing.” The 2019 tennis season is just about over, with just local matches left.

However, with a number of new players in both men and women categories, the history of the sport is looking just as bright as the people who make the sport just as good.

All eyes are set on the winter, in-which the first Grand Slam of the year, the French Open will kick-off the 2020 tennis season. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, and just a number of veterans still left in the game, who can predict what’s going to happen.

Stay tuned for more announcements.
