Serena Williams Wins The Australian Open

The youngest Williams sister has done it again! This weekend, Serena Williams won her 19th Grand Slam title when she defeated Maria Sharapova in the Australian Open. This win moved her up to the second highest number of wins in Grand Slam titles (she only needs three more titles to be number one!) . After the win, Serena gave her acceptance speech saying,“Standing here with 19 championships is something I never thought would happen. I went on the court with a ball and a racket and a hope. It’s inspiring for those of you out there who want to be something or for whatever you want to do when you grow up. You never know who you’re going to inspire; so I’m so honored.”  It’s nice to see she still gets excited over her victories. Congratulations again to Serena!
