Serena Williams Wins 2008 Women’s U.S. Open

American tennis superstar Serena Williams beat Serbia’s Jelena Jankovic yesterday to become the winner of the women’s U.S. Open. This is the third time Serena has taken home the grand prize, making her the number one female tennis player in the world.

“I’m so excited,” Williams said after the match as quoted by usopen.org. “I wasn’t even going for number one. It’s just a bonus. But first, I’d like to thank my god Jehovah.”

Jankovic said, “I was proud to be in the final, but obviously disappointed that I lost.”

This was Jankovic’s first ever Grand Slam final. Congrats, Serena!
