Serena Williams Tries to Make It Two for Two

For all Serena Williams has accomplished, one tiny thing missing from her resume is a successful title defense at the U.S. Open, the site of a couple of her infamous meltdowns. She won her fourth trophy at Flushing Meadows last year, edging No. 2 Victoria Azarenka in a gripping three-set final. When Williams is on, she's certainly the woman to beat. But Azarenka believes she has a chance against Williams, a rare quality on the women's tour; Azarenka won their final at Cincinnati this month. Still, Williams is ranked No. 1, which means she's seeded No. 1 in New York — the last time that happened was 2002, and she won the tournament. (Photo: AP Photo/Elise Amendola)
