News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Sun. Sept. 9, 2012: Serena Williams is the US Open women’s champion.
The win came despite uncharacteristically shaky first serves from Williams and 45 unforced errors. But she fought back to win 6-2, 2-6, 7-5.
It was the first US Open women’s final that went three sets since Steffi Graf defeated Monica Seles in 1995.
“I can’t believe I won,” she said after the match. “I thought, ‘she is playing so great.’” (Hayden Roger Celestin/NAN)
