Serena Williams Wins the 2012 US Open

Serena Williams continues to demonstrate why she is the best in the world (though she is not currently ranked #1). She beat Victoria Azarenka (who is ranked #1 in the world) in 3 sets, 6-2, 2-6, and finished her off in a close 7-5 match. In addition to the US Open, she has already won the Wimbledon crown as well as an Olympic gold medal. Serena who will be 31 in just 17 days, is now the first player over the age of 30 to win the US Open since Martina Navratilova in 1987. She has been ranked #1 in the world 5 times previously and after today she should surely gets the #1 ranking back that she so justly deserves.
