Serena dominates to win the 2014 US Open Title

Serena wins her sixth US Open title

World No. 1 Serena Williams was chasing history when she stepped onto the court of Arthur Ashe Stadium on Sunday to face 10 seed Caroline Wozniacki. Ninety-five minutes later, it was game, set, match. Williams dominated her good friend Wozniacki 63 63 to win her 18th Gran Slam and join the exclusive club which already includes Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. Steffi Graf is the only player in the Open era with more Grand Slam titles, at 22.

With this win, Williams captures her sixth US Open women’s singles title, which ties Chris Evert for the most Open singles titles in the Open era.

Williams also becomes the first player to win three consecutive US Open titles since Chris Evert, who swept four in a row from 1975 to 1978. This was also the third year that she won the US Open without losing a set, having previously done so in 2002 and 2008.

The No. 1 seed collected $3 million for winning the US Open this year, plus an additional $1 million bonus for winning the Emirates Airline US Open Series this summer, making her $4 million check the largest winner’s purse in tennis history. Wozniacki received $1,450,000 for reaching the final.
