Bedecked in a hard-to-miss canary yellow, Serena began her quest to defend her Australian Open title. Her opponent 24 year old, Camila Giorgi wasn’t quite enough to hold off the powerful younger sister of tennis great, Venus Williams. Serena managed to capture three out of four grand slams in the 2015 season and she certainly seems poised to put on a repeat performance in 2016. Williams is one grand slam away from tying Steffi Graf’s historic record. Graf has the most Grand Slams of the Open era with 22.
Serena held off the Italian, Giorgi by beating her in two sets 6-4, 7-5. I’ll keep you updated on her progress through this tournament.
