Victoria Azarenka def. Serena Williams 2-6 6-2 7-6(6)
Azarenka deterred Serena from adding that elusive Cincinnati trophy to her collection by outlasting Serena in a high quality final. Serena shouldn't be too upset. She was beaten by a better player of the day who stayed mentally with her, which 99% of the tour isn't able to. This loss will only propel Serena to work harder in US Open. Victoria will be ecstatic with her 2nd win over Serena this season, and she will be THE favourite, in my opinion, to win the US Open. Well done Victoria!
