Serena Williams breaks down in tears after withdrawing from Rogers Cup final

Williams-Andreescu Toronto final to be shown on big screens in... Montreal

Tennis champion Serena Williams suffered a devastating ending to her brief run at the Rogers Cup final on Sunday when she made the hard decision to retire from the tournament due to a back injury. I know how she feels because I've done that many times in my short career.

Williams' retirement was the last of several high-profile injuries at the Rogers Cup. Just like that, Andreescu had her second win of a major global tournament this year. While in the women's final in Toronto, Ontario, Andreescu beat Serena Williams of Saginaw, MI 3-1, before Williams had to pull out with a back injury.

The Rogers Cup win should help provide some momentum in NY, said Andreescu, who also plans to play an exhibition match in Albany, N.Y. on August 20. Andreescu is now the first Canadian to win the Rogers Cup in 50 years.

Her world ranking will rise from 27th to 14th on Monday. "It's been a tough year but I'm going to keep going".

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.

"I always want to win. But I wish her the fastest recovery".

"I just think I was really sad, and she made me feel a lot better, so that was really nice", Williams said. But at this stage in my career, after what I've been through with my shoulder and just injuries in the past, I try not to take anything for granted right now.

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".

Williams retired after just four games, making Andreescu the champ by default.

The following week she was forced to abandon another excellent run in Miami in the fourth round. before walking away after one round at the French Open in May.

A few more match victories and the Canadian, who is now situated among the top eight to qualify for the season-ending WTA Finals in China in October, could find herself in that top-10 category, closing in on the world No. 5 spot Bouchard reached at the height of her career in 2014. And how I can become better as a person if I push myself through these tough moments.
