Azarenka wins her first Cincinatti title
Two weeks after her disappointing loss against Samantha Stosur in Carlsbad’s Final, the Belarusian defeated the World N°1 Serena Williams after a 2-hour, 29 minute three-set-thriller 2-6 6-2 7-6.
After two one sided first sets, Serena missed her chance of winning her first Cincinatti open by serving for the match with new balls at 5-4 in the third. Victoria finally clinched victory after a close tie break and a last forehand in the net from the American at 6/7 on her serve.
This is the 17th carreer title, 12th on Hard for the World N°2 while Serena stays on an impressive 61-4 this season. There might be a revenge in three weeks in New York…
