Bianca Andreescu says after beating Serena Williams in the US Open final on Saturday, she wants to carve her own legacy in tennis.
The adolescent upset Williams in her Grand Slam final look to win first major with an impressive 6-3 7-5 straight-sets success in Flushing Meadows.
Even the 19-year-old denied Williams a record-equalling 24th major title, meaning she has now dropped four consecutive Grand Slam finals since the arrival of her first child in September 2017.
When Williams won the 1999 US Open andreescu, who was not born, said that while the American was an inspiration for her fledgling career, she wants to create her own heritage.
“I am convinced I’m not the only man that is looked up for her. She is an inspiration for many individuals, not only athletes. What she’s done off the courtroom, too. She is truly a winner. Most importantly, she.
“She came to me at the locker area, she explained some really nice items, which I’ll cherish for a really, really long time,” Andreescu stated about the 38-year-old.
“I’ve really strived to be like her,” Andreescu replied when asked about the joy in their playing style.
“Who knows? I can be better.
“We like to keep the things short with our aggressive game style. We love to use our serve to our advantage. I think we fight really, really difficult.”
“But in exactly the same time, I want to create a name for myself.”
Williams confessed her frustration after dropping finals on Arthur Ashe but insisted that she isn’t completely fixated on Margaret Court record of 24 titles that were important.
“I am not always pursuing a listing. I’m only attempting to win Grand Slams. It’s certainly frustrating, you know,” Williams stated.
“I honestly didn’t play my best today. I might have played . That’s the only solace I can take at this time.
“I feel as though, in 20 years, I will feel like,’Wow, that was not so poor’.
“It’s quite hard right now at the instant to, like, take this and say’It didn’t work out for you today’. It’s really difficult right now to consider that moment in and of course,’You didn’t OK,’ since I do not think I did”.
“All of it honestly, really is super annoying. I am, like, so close, so near.
“I really don’t know exactly what to say. I guess I have to keep going if I want to be an expert baseball player. And I have just got to just keep fighting through it.”
“I think I might have played much better. I believe I might have done. I believe I could have just been more Serena today.
“I frankly don’t believe Serena showed up. I have to kind of figure out ways to convince her to appear in Grand Slam finals.”
