—Serena was finally tested. And she came through. NEW YORK, NY (BASN)
She entered the US Open final against no. 1 Victoria Azarenka without losing a set and only 19 games.
She was 1-9 overall against Serena.
Azarenka played the match of her career. She started off nervously, losing the first set 6-2, but stormed back for her own 6-2 win.
Azarenka was 2 points away from victory at 5-4 in the third, but Serena upped her game and won 11 out of 13 points with some amazing shots.
Azarenka seemed nervous again, especially on her serve and Serena took over against a player who she very much likes and at times during the match clapped for after a great Azarenka shot, especially with Serena at net.
With the win which gave her 1.9 million in prize money, Serena won her fourth US Open and 15th Grand Slam singles event.
Since July, she has won the Wimbledon singles and doubles, the Olympic singles and doubles and the US Open. The doubles wins came with her sister Venus. They lost at the Open.
