    Andreescu 6-3 7-5 Williams

    More from Andreescu on what she had to overcome: Definitely the crowd. I know you guys wanted Serena to win, so I’m so sorry.

    "Obviously it was expected for Serena to fight back but I just tried my best to block everything out. I’m just glad with how I managed.

    "Last year wasn’t an easy period in my life with injuries but I persevered and told myself not to give up.

    "I just keep telling myself, kept working hard and keep the momentum. Hopefully I can keep going.”

    Bianca Andreescu speaking on the court: “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. Being able to play on this stage against Serena, a true legend of the sport, is amazing.

    It wasn’t easy at all. I tried to prepare my best like I do every match, I tried not to focus on who I’m playing. I’m really proud of how I dealt with everything.”

    Andreescu 6-3 7-5 Williams

    Serena Williams speaking on court: "I was just fighting at that point [at 5-1 down in the second set], trying to stay out there a little bit longer. The fans started cheering so hard and it made me feel better and fight a bit more.

    "Bianca played an unbelievable match, I am so proud and happy for you. It was incredible tennis out there. If anyone could win this, outside of Venus, I'm happy it's Bianca."

    Let's hear what Serena Williams has got to say...

  12. Get Involved


    Nicola: Nerves of steel thought once that first championship point had gone and all the momentum was with Serena that this was going to be Serena's come back but Andreescu was never going to let that happen..what a match

    Sulaimon: I can't believe I am saying this, but I don't think Serena Williams will ever win a grand slam title again. Bianca Andreescu deserves all the accolades she gets.

    Skully: Well done to Andreescu but as a single mother I can only take my hat off to my angel Serena. Always a legend

    I think Serena will pull it together. I don't have any doubt. She's going to be back, she's not going to give up.

    Andreescu is sat in her chair with barely an expression on her face.

    She's absolutely stunned.

  15. 'We ran out of superlatives'

    David Law

    BBC Radio 5 Live tennis commentator at Flushing Meadows

    Andreescu was just magnificent for the first set-and-a-half. We ran out of superlatives to describe the way she was playing.

  16. Get Involved


    Sho: Massive credit to Andreescu for recovering after dropping that 5-1 lead in the second set. Could've easily collapsed but refocused and got it done. Mental strength of a champion.

    Andrew Priestly: The weight of 24 tells again!

    She better get used to the spotlight, because it's going to be on her for a very long time.
