Serena Williams wins first title in 13 months!

  Serena Williams Poses

Congratulations to Serena Williams, the real star of women’s tennis, for winning her first title since returning to the game in June after nearly a year’s absence.

Serena, the winner of 13 grand slam singles titles, beat ninth-ranked Marion Bartoli 7-5, 6-1 to win the Bank of the West Classic on Sunday. It was Bartoli who beat Serena at Wimbledon last month.

After winning her fourth Wimbledon in July 2010, Serena cut her feet on broken glass and had a complicated recovery that included blood clots. She returned to the tour in June and this was only her third tournament in the comeback.

“Coming back and hearing the claps when I walk out there are moments that I truly missed,” Williams said. “It’s so awesome to be back and to be a part of those moments. Not everyone can be a sports, I don’t know if `star’ sounds full of myself, but I’ve worked hard for that title.”

She really is a star, the biggest star of her generation and one of the greatest players of all time. It is great to have her back!
