Serena Williams continues to cement her status as one of the best tennis players of all time. Hours ago she nabbed her sixth Australian Open win.

NPR writes:

Serena Williams has beaten Russia’s Maria Sharapova for her sixth Australian Open, clinching her 19th Grand Slam title.

Williams, 33, won the final 6-3 7-6 (7-5).

It was the tennis superstar’s first Australian Open in five years and she managed to win despite fighting a severe cold that The New York Times says “left her occasionally coughing between returns and serves in the final.”

In an emotional victory speech, Williams said she had overcome a lot in her 33 years. She’s now tied for third on a list of the most Grand Slam singles champions.


Serena now has 19 championships under her belt.

Congrats to Serena.

Check out her speech below:


  1. Sharapova’s coach must’ve went into anaphylactic (sp) shock over that win. Especially seeing how Serena’s unattractive self shouldn’t be winning, according to him. *rolls eyes*
