Serena Williams Wins Australian Open Just Like We Said She Would


As promised by me and delivered by tennis queen Serena Williams, the lid was in fact blown off the Australian Open. And that is because Williams – the world number one – won. Williams earned her 19th Grand Slam title early this morning by beating Russia’s Maria Sharapova, (the world number two). This was the 16th time in a row Williams has beaten Sharapova since 2004.

And not only that but our girl wasn’t even feeling well!

From ESPN:

She struggled with a hacking cough, she was sick, and she twice celebrated too early, but she held her composure in a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory on Saturday.
On her third match point, she let her racket go before hearing a let call to what she thought was an ace.

So here’s to 19 more Grand Slam titles, Serena. You did my juju proud today.
