I am going to keep this brief, for now at least, because I really am struggling to process what just happened.
Australian Open 2016 Final… Angelique Kerber d. Serena Williams, 6-4 3-6 6-4
Angelique Kerber is a Grand Slam champion… Has it sunk in for you yet?!
Angelique Kerber needed to play the match of her life to stand a chance… and she did.
Angelique Kerber won a higher percentage of points than Serena on her first AND second serve.
Serena Williams won just 15 out of 32 points at the net.
Angelique Kerber hit 12 winners and 3 unforced errors in the third set.
Serena Williams was so, SO classy in defeat.
Serena Williams had previously never lost a Grand Slam final in three sets.
Angelique Kerber is the new world number two… and I am thrilled for her and her awesome fans.
Angelique Kerber crying after she realised what she had achieved…I’n not ashamed to say I was in tears too.
I love tennis.
