Serena Wins Again

Is Serena Williams having a great year or what? Aside from winning Gold at the Olympics earlier this summer, she also won the Wimbledon championship and today she added her fourth win at the U.S. Open.

Serena, 30, rallied to come back and beat #1 seed Victoria Azarenka, 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 at the Billie Jean King Center in the Flushing Meadows section of Queens.

“I honestly can’t believe I won. I really was preparing my runner-up speech, because I thought, ‘Man, she’s playing so great,” Williams said during the trophy presentation, adding: “I’m really shocked.”

Azarenka, who hadn’t dropped a three-set match all season until Sunday, congratulated Serena, saying: “Serena deserves the win. She showed how true of a champion she is. I definitely gave it all today. Stepping out of this court today, I will have no regrets.”

Serena’s win today is her 15th Grand Slam title overall. She is only the 6th woman to ever achieve such a feat.

Congrats !
