Bianca Andreescu says she would like to carve out her own legacy in tennis after beating Serena Williams at the US Open final on Saturday.
The teenager mad Williams in her Grand Slam appearance to win her first big with an impressive 6-3 success.
Even the 19-year-old denied Williams a 24th title, meaning she has now dropped four consecutive Grand Slam finals since the birth of her first child in September 2017.
When Williams won the 1999 US Open andreescu, that was not even born, said that while the American has been an inspiration because of her career, she would like to create her own heritage.
„I am convinced I’m not the only man that has looked up to her. She’s an inspiration to many folks, not athletes. What she’s done off the courtroom, too. She’s really a champion. Most importantly, she’s really kind-hearted.
„She came up to me at the locker area, she explained some really nice items, which I’ll treasure for a really, really long time,“ Andreescu stated about the 38-year-old.
„I have actually strived to be like her,“ Andreescu responded when asked about the similarity of their playing style.
„Who knows? I could be better.
„We want to keep the things short using our aggressive game style. We love to use our serve to our benefit. I think we fight really, really hard.“
„But in precisely the exact identical time, I wish to make a name for myself“
Williams confessed her frustration after losing back-to-back finals on Arthur Ashe but insisted she is not completely fixated on Margaret Court’s evasive record of 24 titles that were major.
„I’m not always pursuing a listing. I’m only trying to win Grand Slams. It is definitely frustrating, you know,“ Williams explained.
„I honestly did not play my best today. I could have played much better. That is the only solace I can take at this time.
„I really feel as though, in 20 decades, I will be like,’Wow, that wasn’t so poor‘.
„It’s quite hard right now in the moment to, like, just take this and say’It didn’t work out to you today‘. It’s really hard right now to consider that moment in and to say,’You didn’t OK,‘ because I don’t think I did“.
„All of it honestly, actually is super annoying. I am, like, so close, so near, so near, yet so far away.
„I don’t know exactly what to say. I guess I have to keep going if I need to be an expert baseball player. And I’ve only got to just keep fighting through it.“
„I believe I might have played much better. I think I could have done more. I think I might have been more Serena today.
„I frankly don’t think Serena showed up. I must kind of figure out ways to convince her to appear in Grand Slam finals.“
