Serena `pumped up` after Cincinnati loss to Azarenka

Washington, Aug 25 (ANI): Defending US Open Champion Serena Williams is seeking to become the grand slam's oldest women's champion and says she is determined to bounce back from her recent Cincinnati defeat to Victoria Azarenka.

According to CNN, Williams has lost only four matches this year, and is favored for a fifth triumph at Flushing Meadows, but Azarenka has hope of avenging last year's final heartbreak after beating her recently.

Azarenka served for the title just under 12 months ago in New York, but Williams rallied back to claim her 15th grand slam title, the report said.

Serena said that every time she loses, she gets pumped and she feels like she is prepared now to take her game to a new level. (ANI)
