ATOP THE TENNIS WORLD, SERENA

Its been more than 5 years since she last one here at the U.S. Open, this was the same championship that she won first. This is the tournament that started the legend of Serena Williams. With her 3rd US Open Championship, a cool $1.5 million for the winner, and a return to the top of the world is worthy of history books. Serena Williams is an icon, legend, and the Best female tennis player in the world. No doubt about it!

No other player has held the # 1 seed at one time, lost it, then regained it at a later time. Ms. Williams has done just that, she’s a two time #1 player in the world, and her legacy sits alone in the pantheon of greats like Althea Gibson, and Arthur Ashe. She is the quintessential champion. Her poise, grace, and poise are an inspiration for everyone, especially coffee & caramel complexioned little black girls that idolize her.

Serena never lost a set during her climatic climb back to the national spotlight. Her toughest competitor came from her older sister Venus in a prime time quarter final matchup, that felt more like a final, and should have been reserved as such.

Serena replaces Anna Ivanovic atop the WTA rankings. No other player on tour is half as good as the Williams’ sisters. There low rankings are a result of fewer tournaments played, as opposed, to other players whom ranked higher. Though, Serena has said publicly that her sole desire was to reclaim her top seed status.

WOMEN’S TENNIS ASSOCIATION {WTA} RANKINGS 9/9/08

  1. SERENA WILLIAMS
  2. JELENA JANKOVIC
  3. ANNA IVANOVIC

Williams beat Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 7-5 in the final and didn’t lose a set in the process. She spoke afterwards about her return to the top of the mountain. Despite the fact, most of her critics had written off her return to world # 1.

She never doubted, never wavered, and never quit on herself, nor her goal. She overcame all odds, injury, time away from the game, her age (26), her race, her being in big sisters shadow. She eclipsed all of those barriers and left her awesome game, and infectious smile in the wake.

“Oh, yeah,” she said Monday. “I think a lot of people, probably everyone thought (that). I always felt that I can be No. 1 if I really put in the effort.”

“I enjoyed the journey because it wasn’t overnight,” she said. “It wasn’t like it just happened.”

Indeed, its been a long journey, on a SHORT path. Pictured above is Ms. Williams in a sexy red dress, posed with her championship trophy in the heart of downtown NYC Times Square, Manhattan. This photo will be a collectors item because it juxtaposes Serena amid teh hustle & bustle of the greates city in the world, as she smiles with her token of achievement in a sultry sensual fire engine red eye-poppin dress..

Serena is SMOKIN HOT, on & off the court.

Respect due!!!              GAME, SET MATCH, TOURNAMENT…WILLIAMS
