The 19-year-old battled to a 6-3, 7-5 victory in an entertaining final at the US Open in Flushing Meadows.
All of Canada, it seemed, was clinging on to Andreescu's every shot during a bold and brilliant performance on Saturday in which she dominated rallies with punishing groundstrokes to overwhelm tennis great Serena Williams in straight sets.
Williams has now lost her last four Grand Slam finals, last winning in Australia in 2017 before the hard birth of her daughter later that year.
This is Serena's fourth final in the last six major tournaments.

"I'm just so proud that I'm out here and competing at this level".

She couldn't even get into main draw of the U.S. Open previous year after losing in qualifying.
The only other match-up between Williams and Andreescu was cut short when Williams suffered a back injury in the Rogers Cup final in Toronto last month.
