Luminous Bianca! 19-year-old Andreescu Won Canada's First Ever Grand Slam Champion As She Denies Serena Williams Record Title In US Open Final

The Duchess of Sussex flew across the Atlantic to see her friend pick up a 24th Grand Slam title but instead witnessed the dramatic birth of a new superstar in tennis.

Luminous Bianca! 19-year-old Andreescu Won  Canada's First Ever Grand Slam Champion As She  Denies Serena Williams Record Title In US Open Final

In what was only her fifth time in a Grand Slam main draw Bianca Andreescu fought off the rolling thunder of a late recovery from Serena Williams to become the US Open champion at just 19.

Before 24,000 baying fans in the vast Arthur Ashe Stadium she turned in a command performance of bravery and skill to win 6-4, 7-5 in one hour and 40 minutes.

After embracing her parents in the stands she took receipt of a cheque for £3.2million, having become the first player from north of the border to win a Grand Slam in the post-1968 Open era.
