Duane Prokop/Getty Images for Moet & Chandon(CINCINNATI) — Victoria Azarenka topped Serena Williams 2-6, 6-2, 7-6 (6) to win the Western & Southern Open title Sunday.

The second-ranked Azarenka beat the top-ranked Williams for the second time this year and broke Williams’ 14-match winning streak.

The win gives Azarenka her second title of the year.

Despite the loss, Williams already clinched  the 2013 Emirates Airline U.S. Open Series women’s title when she defeated Li Na in the semifinals Saturday. The 16-time Grand Slam winner will claim a $1 million bonus if she wins the U.S. Open.
