The 2012 US Open was a tennis tournament played on the outdoor hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Park, of Queens, New York City, United States. It was played from August 27 to September 10.[1] As a result of adverse weather conditions on September 8, which included a full evacuation of the National Tennis Center because of an upcoming tornado, another day was added to the schedule for the fifth straight year,[2] with the women's final postponed to the afternoon of Sunday, September 9 rather than the previous evening, the men's semi-final between Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer suspended on September 8 and completed on September 9, and the men's final postponed to the afternoon of Monday, September 10.

Djokovic and Samantha Stosur were the defending men's and women's champions respectively. Both were unsuccessful in their title defences; Stosur being narrowly defeated by World No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in the quarter-finals, and Djokovic defeated in the final by Andy Murray. Murray became the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to win a Grand Slam singles title, and the first man to win both the US Open and the Olympic men's singles gold medal in the same year.[3] In the women's draw, Serena Williams won her fourth US Open title, and first since 2008, by defeating Victoria Azarenka in the final.

Women's singles final[edit]

The Women's single's final featured the then top ranked[13] Victoria Azarenka against then three-time champion Serena Williams. Williams had beaten Azarenka in the 2012 Wimbledon semifinals and had won her first six matches in the US Open easily without dropping a set.[14]

Williams won the first set 6-2. Azarenka came back with a break in the first game of the second set and won 2-6.[15] In the final set with the set tied 3-3, Williams double-faulted and Azarenka took advantage and won the break.[15] At 3-5, Azarkenka was two points from victory against Williams' serve,[13] and then at 4-5 Azarenka was serving for the match. Azarenka then made three errors and lost the game to go to 5-5.[15] Williams then won the final two games to win the title.
