Sloane Stephens: 'Tennis would not be the same without Serena Williams'

Many tennis personalities reacted to the US Open final between Bianca Andreescu and Serena Williams. The Canadian player prevailed in straight sets 6-3, 7-5. Simona Halep: "Congratulations Bianca on an amazing performance and your first grand slam!

Romania is very proud of you." Sloane Stephens: "Congrats Bianca on your first slam! Enjoy this moment, so well deserved. And congrats on another amazing tournament Serena. This sport wouldn’t be what it is without you.

You continue to inspire all of us." WTA Founder Billie Jean King: "Congratulations to Bianca on winning her first major title at the US Open. She is Canada’s first Grand Slam singles champion! The Future is Now.

A phenomenal effort by Serena until the very end." Nick Bollettieri: "My heart goes out to Serena getting so close to her 24th Grand Slam title and coming up short but I also want to congratulate the new Women’s Singles Champion, Bianca Andreescu, for an exceptional tournament!!!

Well done, Bianca!!!" Andreescu is happy with her popularity and growing interest around her: "I never really thought about being famous. My goals have been to just win as many Grand Slams as possible, become No.

1 in the world. But the idea of fame never really crossed my mind. I'm not complaining, though. It's been a crazy ride this year. I can definitely get used to this feeling."
