The Aussie tennis great's milestone appears to be something weighing heavily on Williams' shoulders, no matter how much she may deny it. On September 8, a 19-year-old girl from Canada aroused some hopes that there will be someone who will continue to entertain the tennis world after the legendary players retire.

Following Saturday's U.S. Women's final, which the veteran tennis star lost 6-3, 7-5, Williams was critical of her own performance.

Not only has the teenager become Canada's first Grand Slam singles champion, but she is also the youngest Major victor since Svetlana Kuznetsova won the 2004 US Open, when the Russian was also 19 years old.

As for Williams, she says the stress of contending with other tennis superstars might be less taxing than motherhood.

"I was definitely in awe when I saw that".

The 19-year-passe produced a valorous efficiency out on court, clinching a 6-3, 7-5 success in an hour and 39 minutes.

Williams added that she was having a hard time taking in her performance and telling herself " "you did okay" because I don't I did". She will also get a United States dollars 3.85 million check.

"I think that's really been helping me, even in tough situations".

It was Andreescu's first time in the main draw of the US Open, while she becomes the first teenager to win a Grand Slam singles title since Maria Sharapova at the US Open in 2006.

"I was thinking "OK Serena, you didn't miss a serve in the whole tournament, and you didn't hit a first serve in today", she said. What she's done off the court, too.

"I just couldn't go down like that, so I just wanted to play a little bit better".

"Let's face it, she's got another four (Grand Slams) next year and the Olympics, I'm sure she'll want to do that, she loves playing at the Olympics".

Andreescu finally was able to return to the WTA Tour in time for her home tournament last month in Toronto, where she won the title when Williams had to stop playing in the final because of back spasms.

"I will't bitch, this year has been a dream approach lawful and now being in a neighborhood to play on this stage against Serena, a lawful legend of the sport, is phenomenal".

She couldn't even get into main draw of the U.S. Open previous year after losing in qualifying.

"I definitely did better than I did against Halep".

Serena said after the match, "I was just fighting at my point".

Following plenty of heartwarming celebration after securing championship point, the Mississauga, Ont. native remained calm and humble during her interview with ESPN's Tom Rinaldi. Without them, I don't think I could have made it through those periods like I did.
