Finally tested, even trailing, at the U.S. Open, Serena William turned things around just in time.

Two points from defeat, Williams suddenly regained her composure and her strokes, coming back to win the last four games and beat Victoria Azarenka 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 on Sunday night for her fourth championship at Flushing Meadows and 15th Grand Slam title overall.
With the win Williams became the firt women's tennis player to cross $40 million in earnings. With this U.S. Open singles title and her third round doubles loss, her on-court career earnings are now $40,090,142.

"I honestly can't believe I won. I really was preparing my runner-up speech, because I thought, 'Man, she's playing so great,' " Williams said during the trophy presentation after the 2-hour, 18-minute match, adding: "I'm really shocked."
She might be the only one.

After all, what really was stunning was that the top-ranked Azarenka made things as interesting as they were, given that she came into the day 1-9 against Williams.
Add in that Williams hadn't dropped a set in the tournament, losing only 19 games through six matches before Sunday. All part of a tremendous run she is putting together in reaction to her loss at the French Open in late May, the American's only first-round exit in 49 career major tournaments. Since then, she is 26-1, winning Wimbledon and the London Olympics.

"I was miserable after that loss in Paris. I have never been so miserable after a loss," Williams said. "I pulled it together. ... Sometimes, they say, it's good to lose."
There hadn't been a three-set women's final in New York since 1995, and Williams came through with a late charge to become the first woman to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same season since a decade ago, when -- yes, that's right -- she did it.

"She never gives up," said Azarenka, who managed only 13 winners, 31 fewer than Williams. "She's definitely the toughest player, mentally, there is and she's got the power."

What an absolute wondeRFul match it was. Frankly, I have waited almost 2 decades to see such a great WTA final. Azarenka might have lost, but, yes, she won many-2 hearts & the way, she described Williams as the greatest ever & she considers her self to be lucky even standing along sides Serena Williams was so so so good to see.......





Here is the video of Victoria Azarenka & Serena williams speeches at Trophy giving ceremony of US Open, 2012







& what can you say about Serena Williams, when she's in on song, no one can beat her & she proved it again.



Thanks a ton for posting sausan :). Will remember this match for the rest of my life....
