Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
The 30-year-old tennis star who lives with her sister, the 32-year-old tennis star, in the Palm Beach Gardens community of BallenIsles earned her fourth victory in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., after defeating the world’s No. 1-ranked player.
Serena Williams, the younger sibling of Venus, came out on top in the third set, 7-5, and dramatically dropped to the ground in awe. Williams won the first set 7-2 and lost the second 2-6.
The victory marks the amazing athlete’s 15th Grand Slam title of her career and second of 2012. Williams dominated Wimbledon earlier this summer, defeating Agnieszka Radwanska, of Poland.
The U.S. Open’s women’s finals saw Williams beat Victoria Azarenka, of Belarus.
The Williams sisters are seen regularly on the tennis courts of BallenIsles, a premier development in northern Palm Beach County whose facilities are among the best in the nation. Waterfront Properties and Club Communities is the development’s preferred real-estate company and lists BallenIsles homes for sale that range from single-family homes to golf-course residences to grand estates.
Homes for sale in BallenIsles offer top-of-the-line in-home amenities, such as Roman tubs with jets, butler’s pantries and stately fireplaces. They also offer the finest in appointments -- marble, granite and hardwood, impact-resistant glass and decorative ceilings, and summer kitchens with large loggias.
Williams’ summer run included the Olympic Games, where she became the second woman in her sport to earn two gold medals. She won single’s title and, with her sister, the doubles’ title.
In New York, she became the first woman in a decade to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same year -- a record she previously held.
Williams’ loss at the 2012 French Open now seems like a faint memory.
