Hoisting her 9th career Grand Slam trophy

Hoisting her 9th career Grand Slam trophy

She did it! Serena Williams beat Jelena Jankovic in straight sets tonight! I think my mother and I woke up the entire neighborhood when she won that last point and secured her 9th career Grand Alam title.

The Williams Sisters domination continues as they won half of the big slams this year. Venus won Wimbeldon and Serena the US Open.

With the win, Serena also claims the world #1 ranking; something she hasn’t had since 2003. It’s about freakin’ time!

It was also cute to see Serena’s man, rapper Common, in the crowd supporting her. Awwww!

Congrats to Serena on a job well done! We’re so proud!

I’m looking forward to how the new WTA rules play out, once they go into effect next year. Venus and Serena have continually been penalized in the rankings because they don’t play as many tournaments as the rest of the players on the tour. New rules will require players to play fewer of them, which will benefit the Williamses. The bad part of the new rules is that if they skip one of the mandatory — as designated by the WTA — tournaments, they could face a suspension. Things are fixin’ to get mighty interesting in women’s tennis!
