For the second year in a row, Serena Williams’ quest for a record-tying 24th Grand Slam singles title was denied in the U.S Open final by a much younger opponent.

This time, there was no controversy.

19-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu who won her first major title Saturday, defeating the 37-year-old Williams 6-3, 7-5.

Andreescu appeared to be cruising to a routine win before Williams fought off a match point at 5-1 in the second set, then ripped off the next four games to make Andreescu earn the title in front of a partisan, pro-Williams crowd at Flushing Meadows. Andreescu was even forced to cover her ears after one point as the spectators roared Williams back into the match.

Williams admitted she was nowhere near her best as she was beaten by Bianca Andreescu in the US Open final.

“I’m not necessarily chasing a record. I’m just trying to win Grand Slams. It’s definitely frustrating, you know.

“But for the most part I just am still here. I’m still doing what I can do.

“I definitely can say that I’m not really happy, but I have to, like, take it one moment at a time.

I love Bianca. I think she’s a great girl. But I think this was the worst match I’ve played all tournament.
