Williams is a three-time Rogers Cup champion

Serena Williams retired with a back injury in the final of the the Rogers Cup in Toronto, handing the title to Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu.

Williams, 37, was left in tears after suffering back spasms as 19-year-old Andreescu comforted her courtside.

The American was a break down at 1-3 in the first set when she withdrew.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t do it today, I tried,” said the 23-time Grand Slam champion. “It’s been a tough year, but we’ll keep going.”

Andreescu, who won her first WTA title at Indian Wells earlier this year, becomes the first Canadian to win the Rogers Cup women’s singles title since 1969.

“Serena, you made me cry. I know how it is to pull out of tournaments, it’s not easy,” she said.

“This wasn’t the way I expected to win. You are truly a champion. I’ve watched you win so many times, you are truly a champion on and off the court.

“I’m speechless right now. This has been a dream come true.”

Williams’ only previous retirement in a singles final came at the Rogers Cup in 2000 – the year Andreescu was born.

Williams was seeking to win her first title since returning to competition in 2018 after the birth of her daughter.

The US Open, where Williams will hope to win her 24th Grand Slam title, starts on 26 August.

She reached the Wimbledon final last month – losing to Simona Halep – but struggled with a knee injury earlier in the year.
