Bianca Andreescu says she would like to carve out her own legacy in tennis after beating Serena Williams in the US Open final on Saturday.
The teenager upset Williams in her Grand Slam final look to win first major with an impressive 6-3 victory.
The 19-year-old refused Williams a 24th title, meaning she has lost four consecutive Grand Slam finals since the birth of her first child in September 2017.
When Williams won the 1999 US Open andreescu, that wasn’t born, said that while the American was an inspiration because of her fledgling career, she would like to make her own legacy in tennis.
“I’m convinced I am not the only man that is looked up to her. She is an inspiration for many people, not just athletes. What she is done off the courtroom, also. She’s truly a champion. Above all, she.
“She came to me at the locker area, she explained some really nice items, which I will 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 joy in their playing style.
“Who knows? I can be even better.
“We want to keep the points short with our aggressive game design. We want to use our serve to our advantage. I believe we struggle really, really tough.”
“But at the identical time, I wish to make a name for myself”
Williams confessed her frustration after losing finals on Arthur Ashe but insisted that she is not completely fixated on Margaret Court record of 24 titles that were key.
“I’m not always chasing a record. I am only hoping to win Grand Slams. It is definitely frustrating, you know,” Williams explained.
“I frankly did not play my very best today. I could have played . That’s the only solace I can take.
“I feel like, in 20 decades, I will be like,’Wow, that was not so poor’.
“It is quite hard right now in the instant to, like, just take this and say’It didn’t work out to you now’. It’s really hard right now to consider that moment in and of course,’You did OK,’ since I don’t believe I really did”.
“It all honestly, truly is super annoying. I am, like, so close, so near, so near, yet so far away.
“I do not know what to say. I guess I’ve got to keep going if I need to be a professional baseball player. And I’ve only got to keep fighting it.”
“I believe I might have played much better. I think I could have done. I think I could have been Serena today.
“I frankly don’t believe Serena showed up. I have to sort of figure out how to get her to appear in Grand Slam finals.”
