Serena Beats Venus To Win Oz Open
Category : Uncategorized
Serena Williams overcame her older sister Venus to claim a 23rd Grand Slam title with a 6-4 6-4 victory in the Australian Open final.
The 35-year-old became the oldest female Grand Slam champion in history and moved clear of Steffi Graf’s 22 Open-era titles, and just one behind Margaret Court’s all-time record with a straight sets win on Rod Laver Arena.
Victory for Serena Williams also reaffirms her status as the world’s No 1 player – she will overtake Angelique Kerber when the rankings are updated on Monday – but more importantly her place in history.
