Serena Williams wins a match against her sister Venus and becomes the greatest athlete in modern history
Tennis phenom Serena Williams made history as she won her 23rd Grand Slam title on Saturday night, against her sister Venus Williams in in a 6-4, 6-4 victory at the Australian Open.
The Compton, Calif., princess bested her sister Venus in her victory. The siblings—only 15 months apart—shared a long hug on court after the 1 hour, 22 minute match and shut down all notions of any sibling rivalry.
At 35, Serena is the oldest women’s champion at a major in the Open Era—she also held that record when she won the 2016 Wimbledon title at 34 years and 287 days old.
Congratulations to Serena Williams! The Greatest Athlete of all time! #23
