Serena Williams Wins 5th Australian Open

RedTracker| A determined ‘steeley-eyed’ Seren Williams won her modern-day record fifth Australian Open crown last night. “Williams’s awesome power won over Henin’s grace and style as the world No.1 carved out a gutsy 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 victory at Rod Laver Arena”, says SMH.

Williams’s win vaulted her to equal-sixth place alongside her American idol Billie Jean King on the all-time grand slam leaderboard with an even dozen career majors. The 28-year-old now trails only Smith Court (24), Graf (22), Helen Wills Moody (19), Martina Navratilova (19) and Chris Evert (18). via Sydney Morning Herald
