U.S. Open 2014: Serena Williams Beats Caroline Wozniacki for 18th Grand Slam Title – NYTimes.com

{Power, grace, Serena!}

Serena Williams was asked last week what the number 18 meant to her.

“It means legal to do some things,” she said with a laugh.

But she knew what the reporter was getting at.

“It also means legendary,” she added more seriously.

She would not go so far as to call herself legendary — “I’m just Serena,” she said — but she joined some elite company Sunday, when she tied Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova with her 18th Grand Slam singles title.

The top-ranked Williams defeated Caroline Wozniacki, 6-3, 6-3, to capture her third United States Open final in a row and sixth over all.
