Serena Williams won the U.S. Open last night and regained the top spot in women's tennis, a place she has not occupied since 2003. (Her opponent, Jelena Jankovic, demonstrated incredible graciousness after her loss by saying, "I lost my No. 1 ranking. It's not fair.") This is Serena's third Open win and her ninth Grand Slam title. [NY Times]
