“Sometimes doing your best is not good enough. Sometimes you must do what is required”. You have to train, hustle and literally fight off all the odds in order to be a victor. Back in the days, not many people gave women a chance but with the advent of the 21st century, women are beginning to hold their ground; with some becoming legends of their time.
With the closing of the US Open women tennis on Sunday, 7th of Sept. 2014; another legend is stamping her feet on the sands of time and her name is Serena Williams.
Her 6-3, 6-3 defeat of her good pal Caroline Wozniacki in Sunday’s U.S. Open final made it her sixth in New York and third consecutive.
In a season where eight different women reached Grand Slam finals, Williams cemented her status as the top player. It also made Williams the second oldest major female winner in the post-1968 Open era behind Navratilova, who was 33 when she won Wimbledon in 1990. Williams — already the oldest No. 1 since computer rankings were introduced in 1975.
