Canada's Bianca Andreescu catapults to No

Open this

Andreescu beat Serena Williams 6-3, 7-5 in Saturday's final to maintain a 13-match unbeaten run - in which she also won the Canadian Open - to break into the top 10 for the first time in her career.

With her U.S. Open win, the teen prodigy catapulted 10 spots to fifth in the latest WTA rankings, just ahead of her idol and reigning Wimbledon champion Simona Halep and four spots above 23-time Grand Slam victor and the woman she defeated in the final, Serena Williams.

Serena Williams is agonisingly close to matching Margaret Court's grand slam record but has been stuck on 23 titles for nearly three years. Andreescu said: "I don't think I've lost a match since March, so my confidence is skyrocketing right now".

Although Serena will most likely, in typically dogged fashion, trudge on for that elusive 24th major singles title, a defeat in the final of the year-end Grand Slam may just be as close as she is going to get. She is a flawless 8-0 against Top 10 opponents this year, has won 24 matches in a row if you exclude two matches - one in Miami and one at the French Open - that she withdrew from due to injury, has the tennis world at her feet, and still she wants more.

Ashleigh Barty has welcomed Bianca Andreescu's spectacular emergence as a threat to her world No.1 status and hopes the duo can forge a rivalry that endures for years to come. The Copper Branch vegetarian restaurant chain got a bargain when they signed her to a one-year deal worth $50,000.

As broadcast by CBC, Bruneau shares that 30 minutes before the final, Serena walked into the area that she'd been using to warm up during the tournament.

Watch moment Antonio Brown learns Raiders released him: ‘I’m free'
According to NFL.com , the Patriots waived safety Obi Melifonwu and released tight end Lance Kendricks to make room for Brown. Antonio Brown has moved on from two teams this year , and the Steelers actually came out with the better return.

Sylvain Bruneau was talking about the 19-year-old, but it could have equally applied to Serena Williams, her opponent, at pretty much any point over the past 20 years.

The rises of Andreescu and Williams displace Kiki Bertens from the elite eight: the Madrid and St Petersburg champion compiled just a 3-3 win-loss record during the summer hardcourt swing this year, falling in the third round of the US Open to Julia Goerges, and drops three places to No.9.

He became her personal coach in March 2018.

Heyland said she likes how Andreescu is kind off the court, but fierce when she is playing.

There's another silver lining to the injury.

"I don't think I was ever as composed as I am now, or even a year ago".
