As Serena Williams walked into Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Saturday night, headphones around her neck and game-face in place, to play her older sister; Venus, in the Australian Open final, she was completely not aware that a victory would put her back at No. 1.
Now, after her 6-4, 6-4 victory over her sister, the number one spot is hers.
She now has 23 major singles titles.
