Serena Wins US Open!

Serena Williams won her 9th Grand Slam Title, and 3rd US Open Championship, last evening by defeating Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 7-5 during the US Open Finals.

"Every one is so exciting, believe me," Williams said.

"This is cool because I'm at No. 9. I'm pushing the doors closer to double digits, which of course I want to get to."

The win allowed Serena to gain the historic No. 1 spot in women's tennis!

Serena also beat her older sister, Venus, in last week's US Open semi-finals match after losing to Venus at Wimbledon earlier this year in July.

She also opened for DC's professional tennis team, the Washington Kastles, this summer.
