It was over in a little over an hour, and in the end it was nothing surprising. Serena successfully defended her title, passed BJK in the all time slam list, and reaffirmed her status as the top dog in women's tennis. Not that anyone needed any reminding.
The story of her run is in one single record-breaking stat: 89 aces. 89 aces in 14 sets. Want some perspective? Here you go: If you take Isner and Mahut out of it, only three men served more aces than Serena for the tournament: A-Rod, Jo, and Tomas. She served more aces for the tournament than Fed, Rafa, Sod, and Novak, and the same number as Muzz. She served *69* more aces than the next woman on the stat sheet, Venus.
With those stats it didn't matter who was across the net today. Sorry, Bepa. I'm sure Sergey knows a few different ways to cheer you up. Dropping trou is Step 1.
