Serena Williams has won the US Open for the sixth time, beating her good friend Caroline Wozniacki, 6-3, 6-3. This makes Serena’s 18th Major title overall, tying her with Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, and putting her four titles behind Steffi Graf, the all-time leader with 22 Majors.
The first set was a nervy affair, featuring five straight breaks of serve, and more errors than winners. In the second, Williams broke Wozniacki in the first game, giving her a lead she never relinquished. The Dane seemed to be finding her game midway through the second set, but it was too little too late.
