Andreescu consoled Williams after her retirement was confirmed as the emerging teenager lifted her second title of the campaign in front of her home crowd.

Presuming some R&R does the trick, there is no reason to doubt Andreescu has what it takes to go where two Canadians, Bouchard and ace-master Milos Raonic, have gone before her: To the final of a Grand Slam.

"I don´t want to get this far and not at least try", said the 37-year-old, who was eyeing her 73rd WTA title - and her first since the birth of her daughter, Olympia, in September of 2017. "And so that's a little frustrating for me because I know that I could play, I just can't play today", Williams said in the video. Here are seven more facts about Bianca Andreescu that you need to know!

Williams won Cincinnati in 2014 and 2015 but went out in the second round to Petra Kvitova previous year.

SERENA WILLIAMS quest for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam Singles titles later this month appears to be tough ask after the American ace retired injured in Sunday's Rogers Cup final (Aug 11). "I really do believe that I can do well at the U.S. Open and even crack the (WTA's) top-10 by the end of this year".

"This isn't the way I expected to win or for (Serena) to go off the court, but you (Serena) are truly a champion on and off the court", said Andreescu after her win.

Last month at Wimbledon, Williams powered her way to the final against Simona Halep of Romania.

"I just keep trying to pinpoint, figure out what the right step is".

This is the first time since 1969 that a Canadian has made it to the Rogers Cup final. Andreescu then rolled to a 5-2 lead before Kenin finally took a game point back.

"The U.S Open is right around the corner", she said.

Her world ranking will rise from 27th to 14th on Monday.

Andreescu said the shoulder held up very well throughout the Rogers Cup, and she's not anxious about the groin that nagged her during the tournament.

Andreescu brought her drop shot back against Kenin after rarely employing it against Pliskova. "She's a champion and she's an inspiration on and off the court. This has been a dream come true", expressed Andreescu, who became the first Canadian to win the championship in over 50 years. Andreescu had countless stops to make after her big victory, throughout the back hallways of the tennis centre where she spent many hours as a kid building her game.
