Serena Williams captured her 6th US Open title yesterday easily beating Caroline Wozniacki 63, 63 in just 75 minutes.
Serena and Caroline are best of friends, so naturally afterwards the last two standing in the US Open women’s draw met for a night of celebration.
“She’s funny, she’s nice, she’s supportive,” Serena said of her relationship with Wozniacki. “She’s just really, really sweet. You know, she’s a sweet person. I think I can kind of take my wall down a little bit with her and I can be who I am. It’s nice when you can do that with someone. Yeah, it makes it really nice.”
Hoepfully Serena did pick up the tab. Her title not only gave her 18 Grand Slam titles but also added a record breaking $4 million dollars to her bank account.
“I just could never have imagined that I would be mentioned with Chris Evert or with Martina Navratilova, because I was just a kid with a dream and a racquet,” Serena said. “Living in Compton, you know, this never happened before.
“I want to do really well and I love the game. The reason I play is to sit at the end of the day and hold the trophy or stand and hold the trophy. For me, that’s my joys.”
