NEW YORK – Winning 2012 Wimbledon and gold at the 2012 Olympics wasn’t enough for Serena Williams. 30 years young, she shows the world she’s still a force to be reckoned with in the world of tennis.

Serena made history once again taking home the 2012 US Open trophy and grand prize. It’s hard to imagine that just 3 months ago, ‘the Compton gal’ was down and out and was booted out the French Open in the first opening round.
Williams bounced back, fast and with a fury. Last night she took the US Open victory from world’s #1 ranked White Russian Victoria Azarenka 6-2 2-6 7-5.
“I felt miserable after my defeat at Roland Garros,” said Serena when she lost to #11 ranked French player Virginie Razzano.
“I never felt as miserable after a loss as I did then. But losing gives me the ideal motivation. The defeat in Paris helped me to bounce back. I wanted to do more, and more and more. And now I got the best feeling you can have in tennis.”
The 2012 US Open victory makes this Serena’s fifteenth single’s Grandslam win and her 30th total Grandslam win (singles and doubles combined).
“Winning Wimbledon is always special but traveling to your homeland to claim the title there that’s the best there is!”
