From USA Today, where you can read the entire story:
Serena Williams leapt into the air and didn’t want to come back down to earth. So she kept jumping, up and down, over and over, screaming with joy and radiating relief.
It had taken longer than most anyone had imagined and a much tougher opponent than she’d faced all tournament, but Williams had proved victorious. She was the U.S. Open champion, again — for the fifth time. She beat a relentless Victoria Azarenka 7-5, 6-7 (6-8), 6-1 for her 17th Grand Slam singles title, one fewer than Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on the all-time list.
