From Fake Cheque To $3,85m Prize: Bianca Andreescu Reflects Winning US Open

Three years ago, a 16-year-old Bianca Andreescu wrote herself a fake cheque.

That cheque was a mock-up of the one given to the US Open champion.

Now, after beating the great Serena Williams 6-3 7-5 in Saturday's compelling final, the composed Canadian is ready to cash a real one worth about £3.1m.

"I've been dreaming of this moment for the longest time," the 19-year-old said of winning her first Grand Slam title, wiping away tears as the magnitude of what she had just achieved finally hit.

"For it to become a reality is crazy."
