Serena Williams Beats Sister, Venus To Win 23rd Grand Slam Title
Venus Williams came into the Australian Open with high hopes and when she got to the finals, all she wanted to do "beat her junior sister and claim the title".
However, after a nervous start on Rod Laver Arena, Serena Williams defeated her elder sister 6-4 6-4, to claim her 7th Australian Open Title and also her 23rd grand slam title.
This is Venus first tennis final since 2009, and she really gave her best in the game.
With this victory, Serena finally pulls clear of Steffi Graf's 22 major triumphs and now stands just one short of Margaret Court's all-time best of 24.
