Serena Williams breaks down in tears after withdrawing from Rogers Cup final

Serena Williams was overcome with emotion after an injury forced her to withdraw from 2019 Rogers Cup Finals. I didn't want to take a wild card today because I just didn't know how I was going to feel after a match. She had beaten Naomi Osaka, who she faced in last year's US Open final, in the quarter-finals. Williams was having back spasms, which forced her to decide to bow out, leaving Canadian player Bianca Andreescu, 19, as the victor of the tournament.

Williams said the spasms started during her come-from-behind win over Czech qualifier Marie Bouzkova on Saturday "and it just got worse". I know how she feels because I've done that many times in my short career. I've watched you win so many times.

Andreescu, who battled through a groin issue on her way to victory in Toronto, wisely removed herself from this week's Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, saying in her announcement late Sunday: "I really have to listen to my body right now". "This been a dream come true, really."This week has not been easy".

As Williams sat dejected in her chair, Andreescu, who is no stranger to injury setbacks, went over to console her.

After Williams addressed the crowd, Andreescu took time to praise the tennis professional and those in attendance at the match. "She definitely doesn't seem like a 19-year-old in her words, on court, and her game, her attitude, her actions".

Manchester United were in need of a fast start to the campaign to erase memories of a awful end to last season and got it. He entered the fray as a second-half substitute with United scoring just seven minutes after he came on.

Winning the Rogers Cup rocketed Andreescu up the WTA Tour rankings to No. 14 on Monday. Her previous high was 22nd. "I think I would have really regretted not at least going out there and seeing maybe if a miracle happened".

'What I've been through the past two months has not been easy, ' Andreescu said when addressing fans. She's the first Canadian woman to win the tournament in 50 years, following in the footsteps of Faye Urban with her own 1969 victory.

"I've never found another bed like that anywhere". I tried, but I couldn't.

Serena Williams had to bow out of the Rogers Cup tournament two weeks before the U.S Open.

There has not been a home victor of the event, which first took place in 1892, since Faye Urban defeated Vicki Berner in an all-Canadian final in 1969.
