Serena Williams beats her sister; Venus, to claim the greatest ranking.

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.
