New York-- The match between Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka was all that and then some, with Williams winning after a third set.
Two points from defeat, Serena Williams suddenly regained her composure to come back to win the last four games and beat No. 1-ranked Victoria Azarenka 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 on Sunday for her fourth U.S. Open title and 15th Grand Slam title overall.
Williams improved to 26 wins and just one loss since a first-round exit at the French Open in late May, winning Wimbledon and the London Olympics.
