Serena Williams was in tears after she was forced to retire through injury in the Rogers Cup final against Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu.

The 37-year-old, who was beaten in the Wimbledon final by Simona Halep last month, was four games into her match against Andreescu when she complained to her trainer about feeling back spasms.

A tearful Williams was consoled in her chair by Andreescu who said: Ive watched you your whole career, youre a f*****g beast.
