Serena regains number one

Serena Williams has won the US Open after beating Jelena Jankovic in straight sets and also got the number one ranking in the process.

This is William's third US title and it would have been the first grand slam title for Jankovic had she won.

In a final delayed by a day, Williams once again showed her class to win the US Open plus the world number one ranking.

I thought Jankovic had a good start especially for somebody playing in her first grand slam final but Williams drew on her experience to make sure that the good start did not count for much.

William's win means that there have been four different women grand slam winners this year, a year where nobody really dominated and hence the constant changes in who is number one.

In the men's final tomorrow, Andy Murray will meet world number two Roger Federer after beating the top seed Rafael Nadal in four sets.

The match had to be continued today after rain stopped play on Sunday with Murray leading by two sets to love and although he lost the third set he came back from a break down in the fourth to win the fourth set and go for his first grand slam final.

I think Federer will win the match to get his first grand slam title for the year. I think this is his best chance especially with Nadal now out of the way but maybe Murray can cause another upset.

Meanwhile Cara Black and Liezel Huber beat Sam Stosur and Lisa Raymond to win the women's doubles title.
