Henin committed six double faults and could not take advantage of six break points.

She was still in position to win the event, however, after taking the second set and forging a 2-2 tie in the third.

Serena took over by winning the final four games of the match, including a key break of serve.

Ultimately, her power was too much for Henin to handle, as Serena blasted 12 aces and 32 winners.

Her 12th Grand Slam title ties Serena for sixth all-time with the legendary Billie Jean King.
