Bill Clinton hugs Serena Williams

“I have met him several times,’’ Serena said. “We kind of reminisced about when I was a teenager and how he first saw me then coming to the White House and several times at the U.S. Open. That’s kind of unique to have a history with a former president of the United States of America.’’ – nypost


o. 1 Women’s tennis player (in the world) Serena Williams beat No. 2 Victoria Azarenka for the U.S. Open title at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, Queens last night! When it came down to it Serena had to put the little hummingbird (Azarenka) to sleep! Azarenka gave it a shot taking down the champion in the second set, but Serena came right back with a vengeance and took the crown 7-5, 6-7 (7-9), 6-1! Former president Bill Clinton was even waiting in the women’s locker room to give her a hug and commemorate the occasion! Besides becoming the oldest woman (31 years old) to win the U.S. Open, she also tied Roger Federer with 17 Grand Slam titles and five U.S. Open titles! Serena is now only one Grand Slam title away from tying Chris Evert’s and Martina Navratilova’s record (18)! Steffi Graf holds the all-out Grand Slam title record at 22.
