Serena, a Deserving Winner But Match was Unexciting, Even a Yawn

In a fairly one-sided match at the Australian Open final this evening, Serena Williams expectedly walked home with her 23rd Grand Slam title, with a straight-set win over sister Venus.

The sisters (below) relish the moment with a hug.

The win made Serena eclipse Steffi Graf’s 22 Grand Slam titles. All credit to Serena for taking her tally to 23.

But I found the match unexciting, even a yawn. Possibly because it was a family affair and the competitive spirit had gone out the door.

The sisters, though, cannot be blamed for any loss of spectator interest. They went through the rigour, the paces and made it a sibling final.

Serena is a deserving winner, better and stronger than Venus by a mile.
