Serena Williams got emotional on Sunday at the 2019 Rogers Cup Finals before and after her shocking loss to 19-year-old Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu. Andreescu walked over and comforted the 23-time Grand Slam victor. She's only 19. She definitely doesn't seem like a 19-year old in her words, on court and her game, her attitude, her actions. "I know everything about you".

Presuming some R&R does the trick, there is no reason to doubt Andreescu has what it takes to go where two Canadians, Bouchard and ace-master Milos Raonic, have gone before her: To the final of a Grand Slam. "I tried, but I couldn't". "I started tearing up because she was tearing up", Andreescu said during a post-match press conference, per CNN.

Williams was looking to win her first identify for the reason that returning to the opposition in 2018 after the birth of her daughter.

The following week she was forced to abandon another excellent run in Miami in the fourth round. before walking away after one round at the French Open in May. For Williams, the Rogers Cup would have been nice but her focus clearly lies on winning next month's U.S. Open, which would be a suitable ending to her incredible career.

"I'm not a crier, but, thank you guys", Williams said, her voice cracking during the trophy ceremony.

"Just with all that I've been through". I hardly played before then, either. "Let's wait and see two or three years how well as she goes".

For Andreescu, Sunday's events were a bittersweet achievement as she became the first Canadian to win the title since Faye Urban in 1969.

And 19-year-old Andreescu rushed to comfort upset Williams instead of immediately celebrating in front of her home crowd in Toronto. "I remember even many times I'd win fairly major championships in Canada and there'd be no trophies involved". "You are truly a champion on and off the court".

Serena Williams retired hurt in the Rogers Cup final, handing Bianca Andreescu her second title and seventh career win over a top-10 player.

"This week has not been easy".

"It was more likely that I was not going to [play], because although I did fine in the match today, physically, my legs felt quite heavy at the end of the match, and that's probably not going to change a whole lot in a couple of weeks".

The American revealed that the back spasms began on Saturday and despite the pain, she powered through four games of the opening set, but couldn't continue further as the pain got worse.
