Serena Williams, in a match against her sister Venus, has claimed her 7th Australian Open victory, winning 6-4 6-4. This moves her back to the number one slot after having been defeated back in September against Angelique Kerber of Germany.

 

“It’s such a great feeling to have 23. It really feels great. I’ve been chasing it for a really long time. It feels like, really long time. When it got on my radar, I knew I had an opportunity to get there, and I’m here.” – Serena Williams
