Azarenka Claims No. 1
Victoria Azarenka not only won her first major title, but also took over the No. 1 ranking for the first time. The Belarusian throttled Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-0 to end Caroline Wozniacki's reign atop the WTA. Azarenka, 22, became the fourth straight first-time women's major winner, joining Li Na (French), Petra Kvitova (Wimbledon) and Sam Stosur (U.S.). It's the first time the holders of all four majors are first-time winners.
