Serena Williams beats Victoria Azarenka, wins fourth US Open title
New York, Sep 10 (ANI): Serena Williams, through sheer force of will as much as her unquestionable skill, beat world number one Victoria Azarenka 6 2 2 6 7 5 in a dramatic U.S. Open final to win her fourth title at Flushing Meadows and her 15th career grand slam. Williams provided an emphatic reminder of why she has amassed so many major titles, reeling off the next four games on the trot to seal victory, just a few weeks before her 31st birthday. Billed as a clash between the greatest player of her generation and the top player in the world this year, the match lived up to all the hype and more after initially offering only a one sided romp for Williams. The American raced through the opening set in just 35 minutes with two service breaks and 16 stunning winners.
