Bianca Andreescu, of Canada, reacts after scoring a point against Serena Williams, of the United States, during the women's singles final of the U.S. Open tennis championships Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, in NY.

Candian teenager Bianca Andreescu has stunned Serena Williams by beating her in straight sets to in the US Open final to claim her maiden Grand Slam title. "I guess these visualisations really, really work".

Bianca Andreescu has arrived and it looks like she is going to be doing some fantastic things on the tennis court for years to come.

"Serena will be looking at it, 44% of first serves in, and that's not good enough", Barker said.

Andreescu played "mostly fearless for a big part of the match. I think her returns make me play better and puts pressure on my serve", she said. "I just feel really honored to be out here and competing at this level". Williams struggled with unforced errors, and finished the match with 33 unforced errors to 33 winners.

She rallied in the third game, finally making in-roads on Andreescu's serve, but it was a brief moment of hope as she dropped her next two service games to fall behind 5-1.

Andreescu now holds an 8-0 record over top-10 players in her career, with each of those wins coming in 2019, showcasing her ability to step up against the best. I believe I could have done more.

It wasn't all frosty in the room however as an open and honest Williams admitted the showing was by far her worst of the tournament.

Serena Williams plays her women's final at the 2019 US Open at Billie Jean National Tennis Center in New York City, NY USA, on September, 7, 2019.

"She does get tight but those four women have played the matches of their lives", tennis legend Chris Evert said in commentary for ESPN.

"I think it's one of the most powerful tools we have, our minds".

And each time, Williams lamented not quite playing up to her own high standards. I'm not necessarily chasing a record.

"I was feeling many, many things before the match, more than any other match", Andreescu said. I'm still doing what I can do.

"I just tried to stay as composed as I could".

"I don't know what to say".

Andreescu had a championship point at 5-1 in the second set but Williams, roared on by a vociferous crowd on Arthur Ashe, hauled herself back to 5-5. "I sacrificed a lot, my parents sacrificed a lot", she added.

Williams has now lost in successive US Open finals, following her defeat in such controversial circumstances at the same venue to Japanese youngster Naomi Osaka past year. "My baby was eight months, and that´s tough". Williams didn't win the match, but she showed that the aptitude that helped her win the 1999 U.S. Open hasn't faltered.

"I´m not really happy, but I have to take it one moment at a time", she said. I know I have a different game style than many players on the tour right now.
