The 31-year-old American outlasted Victoria Azarenka to claim her fifth US Open singles title on Sunday. Serena, who turns 32 later this month, became the oldest US Open women's winner since tennis turned professional 45 years ago, eclipsing Australian Margaret Court, who was 31 years and 55 days when she won the title in 1973.
