NEW YORK (AP) – Serena Williams ended a difficult-for-her Grand Slam season in the best way possible, winning her third consecutive U.S. Open title by beating Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-3 today.

Williams equalled Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova with 18 major singles titles, the fourth-most in history. Williams also matched Evert’s total of six championships at the U.S. Open and became the first woman to win three in a row since Evert’s four-title run from 1975-78.

Williams earned a US$4 million winner’s check, a record in tennis – $3 million for the title, plus a $1 million bonus for having had the best results during the North American summer hard-court circuit.
