All was set for a great final. The world number 1 Serena Williams met Maria Sharapova, who is the current world number 2. Serena was the favorite, despite the fact that Maria Sharapova had a better tournament so far. Serena lead Maria Sharapova 16:2 head to head before this match and the last lost against her rival dated back as far as 2004.
In the end Serena won 6:3 and 7:6, getting her 6th Australian Open title and 19th Grand Slam title in total. Now she is only 3 Grand Slam titles behind tennis legend Steffi Graf. Despite her age, I think she can win at least two more Grand Slams this year and even have another great year in 2016. Looks like Maria Sharapova has to wait that long to win another Grand Slam title….
