US Open day 13 recap: Williams bows to Andreescu

Bianca Andreescu is the new US Open champion. Serena Williams bowed to the nineteen years-old Canadian (6-3 7-5), who does not lose a WTA match from February. The final showed Andreescu's brilliant and solid tennis; she is a player destined to become the true future leader of the women's Tour, perhaps the only one able to take the legacy of Serena.

Once again the American was not able to get the record, which is becoming a nightmare; she has indeed lost the last four Slam finals played. Is it only a problem of pressure management? Bianca played a great match, but Serena wasted one of the most important chances to reach the 24th Slam title.

Today the 139th edition of the US Open will come to an end: there is great anticipation for the men's final between Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev. Will the Spaniard be able to get even closer to Roger Federer's 20 Majors? And could Daniil Medvedev break the reign of the Big Three? Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and wife of Prince Henry of England saw the women's singles final in the box of Serena Williams.

Markle is a fan of the American and a great friend of the 23-times-Slam-champion, but she had to see Serena lost the match against her young rival. Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah wrote again the history of Colombian tennis.

After winning at Wimbledon the two players also triumphed at the US Open, losing only one set during the tournament. Jamie Murray and Bethanie Mattek-Sands won the mixed doubles, while the highly anticipated women's doubles final will be between Barty/Azarenka and Mertens/Sabalenka.
