A highly-anticipated final at the Rogers Cup was unfortunately cut short on Sunday, when Serena Williams had to retire from the match in the first set due to injury.

Bianca Andreescu became the first Canadian to win the womensโ€™ final in 50 years, but before celebrating her title win, she shared a special moment with Serena.

It was a classy gesture by Andreescu, and Serena had a lot of respect for her after the match.

Even though we didnโ€™t get the head-to-head matchup that we may have wanted, you love to see sportsmanship like this.

In her full post-match presser, Serena also described Andreescu as a fabulous personality and an old soul wise beyond her years. The next these two face off will definitely be something to look forward to.
