Serena Williams wins her 5th US Open title


When the conversation starts as to who should be crowned the greatest female athlete of all time, Serena Williams is who should get the nod. At 31 years old, Serena Williams has won her 17th Grand Slam title and her fifth U.S.Open. Williams defeated Victoria Azarenka 7-5, 6-7 (6-8), 6-1 to win. It was the first time Serena was forced to play at third set in a tournament that saw her dominating opponents.

This win places Serena with one less Grand Slam than Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on the all-time list.
