World Number One and top seed at the tournament American Serena Williams is the winner of this year’s U.S Open Tennis Championship after defeating 10th seed Danish Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-3 in a thrilling final at the Flushing Meadows, Tennis Arena in New York.
With the win, Serena has six U.S Open titles and total 18 grand slams titles. She becomes the third person in history to have reached the fete after other tennis greats Chris Evert and Martina Narvatilova did years ago. Serena was only 17 years old when she won her first U.S Open in 1999.
In the Men’s final, Japanese Kei Nishikori took on Croatia’s Marin Cilic after he stunned top seed and world number one Serbian Novak Djokovic while Marin upset 17th time grand slam champion Roger Federer.
Marin being unable to play in the U.S. Open a year ago because of a doping suspension, is now the tournament’s champion.
Croatia’s Cilic won his first Grand Slam title by beating Japan’s Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 on Monday, using 17 aces – including four in one game – and the same powerful ground strokes that helped him eliminate Roger Federer in the semifinals.
