2012 U.S. Open—women's final.

Serena Williams defeats Victoria Azarenka.

 

Result:

Serena Williams wins 6-2, 2-6, 7-5

 

Review:

Serena Williams is the toast of all America after winning another U.S. Open Grand Slam title—taking out World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in three sets in a Grand Slam epic.

The Belarusian looked to have the match there for the taking after Williams' plethora of unforced errors handed her a double break in the second set and whilst she did go on to claim the set, she couldn't carry it through to achieve the victory.

Azarenka actually served for the match—up 5-4 in the third set—but was broken by Williams and seemed to lose all momentum and confidence after that moment.

It was all Williams after that, who was understandably ecstatic with her championship victory—a victory that will go down as one of the greatest Grand Slam matches in history.
