During the match Serena hit 17 aces, bringing her tournament total to an astonishing 102 aces, more than both of the men's finalists Roger Federer (59) and Andy Murray (74). It is widely being discussed as the most important and dominant shot in tennis, both men's and women's. To emphasize the point, in the 3rd set at 1-2, Serena served a "perfect game," 4 consecutive aces, to hold serve. After that Serena's play returned to her high standard.
Radwanska impressed observers with her tenacity, coming back from a 2-4 deficit to claw back to even in the middle set, despite the fact Serena had points on her serve to a 5-3 lead. Her service percentage plummeted as the weather got windy and wet. Radwanska took advantage of her opportunities, breaking Serena twice in consecutive service games on a mere two break points. In the 3rd set Serena had multiple opportunities to break, finally doing so in the 5th and 7th games and served out the win pretty easily, using her big serve to force a backhand crosscourt winner on championship point.
With Serena's 14th major title, she moves closer to the 18 singles held by Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova but is still behind Steffi Graf's 22 and Margaret Court's 24. She's moved 2 ahead of Billie Jean King.
What do you think, should this win move Serena higher up the official list of all-time tennis greats?
