Serena wins Rogers Cup


Serena wins Rogers Cup Serena Williams is looking like her victorious self leading into the US Open.

In her fourth tournament since sitting out 49 weeks because of injury and illness, Williams won the Rogers Cup TODAY, beating Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-2.

A foot injury and then blood clots in her lungs sidelined the 29-year-old American after she won Wimbledon last year. Now she’s won two straight tournaments after taking the Stanford title July 31.

Williams broke the 10th-seeded Stosur to go up 5-4 in the opening set. She would break the Australian’s serve twice more in the second in the 1 hour, 17-minute match, winning in emphatic fashion with her ninth ace.

The formerly top-ranked Williams, a 13-time Grand Slam champion, was unseeded in the tournament and is ranked just 80th in the world as she continues her comeback.

She’s projected to rise to No. 31 in next week’s rankings.
