Serena Williams wins Australian Open 2017

Serena Williams beats sister Venus 6-4, 6-4 to win Australian Open 2017 and record 23rd Grand Slam title on 28th January 2017. Thirteenth seed Venus, 36, beat fellow American Coco Vandeweghe 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 6-3 to reach her first major final since 2009.  World number two Serena, 35, saw off unseeded Croat Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-2 6-1 in the second semi-final. 
This was the ninth time the sisters had met in a grand slam final. Eight years on from their last together, it was also surely the least likely of all. The early stages showed inside knowledge counts for plenty. Serena broke in the first game of the match by guessing correctly, or perhaps just outright intuiting, that her sister would go wide to her forehand with a smash at the net. Not only did Serena retrieve it, she sent a quite sensational winner fizzing past Venus.
