Serena Williams was left in tears after she had to retire in the Rogers Cup Final due to injury handing victory to Canadian starlet Bianca Andreescu, MySportDab reports.

Williams had enjoyed an impressive week, beating the likes of Naomi Osaka, to reach the final in Toronto.

And the 23-time Grand Slam champion was meeting the hometown favourite Andreescu for the first time, but to the disappointment of the sell-out crowd, the eagerly anticipated final came to an abrupt end.

Andreescu broke early in the first set to lead 2-1 and then consolidated the break after an unforced error from Williams.

But after losing the game, Williams tried to hold back the tears asshe walked to her chair and called for a trainer.

After talking to the physio it was announced Williams would no longer be able to continue and Andreescu walked over and embraced her distraught opponent.

A tearful Williams said in the trophy ceremony: "I'm sorry I can't do it today, I tried but I just couldn't do it.

"Thank you, Jehovah for letting me come out here. Bianca, you're a great sportswoman. Thanks to my team.

"It's been a tough year, but we'll keep going.”

With the victory, Andreescu becomes the first Canadian woman to win the final of the Rogers Cup since 1969.

I tire ! She's too competitive , that's why she always burst into different emotions. Am not a fan of over competitive people like her and Nadal. Federer is king.

23 grand slams. What more does she want? Before she twists a joint that confines her to a wheelchair.

There is no Mother and Father in Sports. Everything is Time. Check Mike Tyson, Mohammed Ali, Maradona and others. Once you've reached the peak, kindly retire and leave space for younger ones to come up.
