August 24, 2015 — Serena Williams won back-to-back titles at the Western & Southern Open yesterday, defeating a fan favorite Simone Halep of Romania, 6-3 7-6(5). 

The American now has her sights set on New York and the U.S. Open. She will try to become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to win all four Majors in a calendar year. 

“I’m ready,” Serena told ESPN. “I don’t care if I win or lose or break even. I’m ready to start it, get it over with and be done and go on to the next event. But I’m so ready for New York.”

The U. S. Open begins Monday, August 31, at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.
