2016 US Open: Bracket, schedule and scores for women's draw

Serena Williams lost in the semifinals at the US Open, losing her top ranking to Angelique Kerber.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Angelique Kerber has won the finals of the 2016 US Open, giving her a second Grand Slam title and her first from Arthur Ashe Stadium. Kerber, the second seed going into the tournament, also earned the top ranking in the world when Serena Williams was bounced in the semifinals at the hands of Karolina Pliskova.

Pliskova, the No. 10 seed of the tournament, also had the opportunity to unseat Kerber and win her first Grand Slam title. She was unable to best her though, falling in Saturday's final. Pliskova fought hard and pushed Kerber to three sets, and was the woman to originally deny Kerber the top ranking when she beat her in the finals in Cincinnati prior to the US Open.

There's likely a bright future ahead for Pliskova, who seems to be getting better and better. But for now, all eyes are on Kerber, the new No. 1 player in women's singles in the world. Kerber made it to her first Grand Slam final this year, and then made it to two more. She won the Australian Open and now she's won the US Open, though she was unable to win in the finals at Wimbledon.

Williams was playing great tennis at the US Open and will not sit idly by, that's for sure.
