Serena Williams Venus Williams

Serena Williams's seemingly easy straight set victory (6-4, 6-4) over big sister Venus Williams at the Australian Open gave her back her No. 1 ranking.

But most importantly, the Australian Open title gives Serena 23 Grand Slam singles titles -- breaking a tie with Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam singles titles in the Open-era.

"I've been chasing it for a really long time," Williams said, referring to elusive #23. "When it got on my radar, I knew I had an opportunity to get there, and I’m here. It’s a great feeling. No better place to do it than Melbourne."

Venus shrugged off speculation that she helped her sister win.

"That's my little sister, guys," Venus Williams said, pointing at Serena during the post-match ceremony.

Venus Williams and Serena Williams in Melbourne

Speaking directly to her sister, she said:

“Congratulations Serena on No. 23. I have been there right with you. Some of them I lost right there against you. I guess that’s weird, but it’s been an awesome thing. Your win has always been my win. I think you know that. And all the time I couldn’t be there, wouldn’t be there, didn’t get there, you were there. I’m enormously proud of you. You mean the world to me.”

But there's still work to be done. Serena is still one title short of Margaret Court’s career record of 24 major singles titles. And Serena has never won the coveted Golden Slam -- all 4 major titles (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open) and an Olympic gold record in the same calendar year. That record is still held by Graf.

Serena Williams campaign for Berlei

Earlier in the week, Williams displayed her curves in a new lingerie campaign for Berlei.
The 35-year-old tennis ace posed for the Do It For Yourself campaign to showcase Berlei's new autumn/winter 2017 sports collection.

Serena said: "Do it for yourself is really about focusing on ourselves as women. "Celebrating our female strength and power and beauty. We need to take time for ourselves, invest in ourselves, and be strong. Not only for yourself, but to support and encourage other women in your lives."

The campaign was shot by Jez Smith/Splash News for Berlei.

  • IAmLegend

    I was up at 2:30 this morning to watch this match because of the time difference in Australia. I am incredibly proud of both Venus and Serena. Venus had her chances to win the match but Serena had history to make. I'm a proud of Venus for fighting through her potentially career ending illness and returning to the top of the sport. And those shoes Michael Jordan had custom made for Serena will definitely be a collectors item. #23.

    Ultimately the family won. Amen.

    I remember years ago when Venus was a young rising tennis star and their dad told an interviewer his youngest was the one to watch out for. Their dad had some vision. That man was miraculous. Black parents BELIEVING in their children is worth more than money and education combined. There is nothing without BELIEVING in children.

  • Nicola Phillips

    You had to drop some shade in there ? Didn't you ? Talking about her sister helping her and about she never winning 4 Grand Slams in one calendar year .Girl , or boy, you have issues .You can't genuinely be glad for anyone .I tell you !

  • Zizzle

    Venus was diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome in 2011 and she's been clawing her way back ever since. Were it not for that I'm sure she'd have won some more slam titles by now.

  • Ebony Starr

    I was up with you, set my alarm. I love what they have done for tennis and sports in general. I am so proud of them both!! If Richard Williams was white he would have endorsementsaid, movies and his own training facility. They are just starting to give him his due for raising and training 2 phenoms!

  • Locapoca

  • IAmLegend

    That's wassup! And you are right. Richard Williams literally changed the sport of tennis and should be regarded as the greatest coach of all time. He is a visionary. He planned their careers before they were even born. Venus and Serena were literally born to play tennis lol.

  • Zizzle

    I was up with both of you too, and haven't gone back. ???

  • IAmLegend

    Venus has 11 wins over Serena...more than anyone. Venus has been ill since 2004 and didn't get a diagnosis til 2011. There's no cure for her disease but what she is now able to do in spite of it is incredible.

    And nobody was talking about Margaret Court until Serena started closing in on Steffi Graf's slam record. Before then she was unanimously accepted as the GOAT with her 22. LOL. People and their double standards.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    The fact Venus has been diagnosed with and battles Sjögren's syndrome ; and still made it to this title match is remarkable, awe inspiring and title worthy! She in fact did receive a title and a higher ranking too. It's not the sale as winning but she beat so many to get where she was to face Serena! She isn't afraid to face her ! I love Venus's natural hair too!!! She rocks those natural styles and doesn't care what folks say! I hope they both continue on and achieve more success !

  • Zizzle
  • Nicola Phillips

    I just want her to win 2 more Grand Slams to shut up all of the haters .Magaret Court has amateur and Grand Slams titles .If Serena gets to 25 , she will have all Grand Slams.Please God !

  • Anji

    I never tire of seeing the palpable love expressed from sister to sister. I remember when Venus used to beat Serena and the passing of the torch never bothered Venus as here baby sis gained in victories. I see the courts they grew up on and unfortunately they remain empty. It took a Richard to create these champions.

  • Anji

    Sorry. Compton. Not SC.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Even when the reporters try to be slick and attempted to make one of them say something bad about the other one or when the racist commentators try to make them one person.

    I am talking about you Pam Shriver and Manly Mary Carrillo.

    I hope Carrillo is someone in a corner curled up in the fetal position not only because Serena just broke the tie with Steffy Graff but your cush Sharapova won't be back in action until March and because her ranking has dropped so low she may end up playing Serena in one of the early rounds.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Their dad said that Serena is meaner and I have to agree that she has the killer instinct that Venus doesn't possess.

  • Empress

    I like Venus' bun, that's cute girl.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    And everytime Serena doesn't win a major they are always bragging on the player who did and exhaulting them as the person to replace Serena but they never last.

    Last year it was Angelique Kerber and her a$$ got knocked out in the third or fourth round.

    I know it burns their a$$es twice that not only did Serena win her 23rd grand slam but Venus made it to the finals and will be ranked in the top 10 on Monday but all of them can GFY with a rusty dildo.

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Sweetie: You may have missed the part about Venus being seriously ill. I know from personal experience and the person I've been caring for for 7+ years that when a person is ailing, the last thing they're thinking about is their edges. Thank God for the gift of good health. You don't know if Venus is losing her hair or what the situation is. You took a positive story and posted a negative comment. People who feel good about themselves don't seek to do that.

    I am blessed and I pray God blesses you in turn.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Do yourself a favor. Take your patronizing tone, words and suggestions elsewhere. Ask yourself why you felt the need to reply to me when I hadn't responded to you. You are clearly in your feelings. IDC about your ignorant opinions re: people's edges. This post wasn't about Venus or Serena's hair, but in true crabs in a barrel fashion, you couldn't give these two immensely successful women props on their contributions to sports. They are role models for Black people, women, women of color and any damn body who respects athleticism and hard work, yet you chose to focus on edges/hair texture.

    I'm done. Don't @ me again.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I'm not a hater of wigs or weaves either that's a womans choice. Some women like Serena alternate between the two and mix it up. To be blatantly attacked or questioned for choosing to wear your in a style that is natural is absolutely unnecessary. It should not be a trend either because that means temporary style. Some women choose to wear wigs , or braids while they are growing out their hair , for a change, or as protective style. Natural hair takes a lot of care and maintence.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I use soft molding creams on my hair, it is curly and would look ridiculous with edge control plastering them down . It takes away from the natural beauty of the style when you try to plaster the edges down. It took awhile for my hair to get healthy and curly from years of flat ironing it then I discovered edge control to keep my edges straight too. Now it takes 7 months for me to use a jar of it . I don't flat iron my hair now but three times a year and found a stylist with natural hair styles natural hair. Your edges should match your hair texture that you rock and theirs does. I love it!

It took awhile for my hair to get healthy and curly from years of flat ironing it then I discovered edge control to keep my edges straight too. Now it takes 7 months for me to use a jar of it . I don't flat iron my hair now but three times a year and found a stylist with natural hair styles natural hair. Your edges should match your hair texture that you rock and theirs does. I love it! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b121a35eeb8facaf36697d89f4098d3d6f95ed2ec6b47c5d1294d7c1e2354494.jpg

    Love them. Love how they can separate work and their relationship.

    I edited my post just for nitpickers like you. I didn't say she didn't win all 4 major titles. I said she didn't win them in one year. But since that isn't good enough for nitpickers like you, I clarified that she didn't win the Golden Grand Slam in the same calendar year. Oh, and I added the Olympic gold medal to the list of the Golden Grand Slam that she has never won in the same year.

    "The calendar slam is what she's missing..not important though"
    ------------

    It may not be important to you, but trust and believe it is very important to Serena. I was watching when Steffi Graf won her Golden Slam in the same year. It is an amazing and rare achievement. Until the day that Serena wins hers, she will remain 2nd best to Graf.

    Love, love, love the Williams sisters! Let's see a close up of Serena's ring!

    You assumed wrong, but it's ok. Since it seems you have the time, go through SR's blog and you'll see me comment time and again about how much I hate wigs and weaves and wish black women would get back to wearing "their hair." You apparently jumped to a conclusion about what you THOUGHT I meant.

  • Allihave2say

    Umm integrity in journalism...correct information is about the nitpickers.

  • Allihave2say

    Clever. and this one evil=live.

    We don't even have to leave this country. We had Joe McCarthy and McCarthyism with mass hysteria.

  • Allihave2say

    The Germans wanted someone to blame for their problems. They followed a mad man who looked nothing like the ideal white man he worshipped. The world knew what was happening in Germany and allowed those people to be slaughtered for 8 years because many were invested in the experiments the Germans were doing.

    All the roses had better stay on American soil in 2017. Next they'll be accusing Americans who travel abroad of being in cahoots with the others.

    No it won't.

    I liked it. It's corny and what we need. I'm tired of yts always getting green-lighted and PAID for stupid ass romcoms. why not tap into our demographic. there of plenty of black women who wanna see ourselves represented in a quirky way bc we , too, are quirky. the movie was cute. the interview afterwards with the cast was fun to watch. I would watch this again on my period on a rainy day lol

  • S. Williams

    Venus's hair was super cute during the match. she's natural and it was full and her bun was nice

  • nyla00

    But is it? It is often stated that bloggers aren't journalist. I say you still have an obligation to post the facts.

  • S. Williams

    when I tell you that Ralph is the greatest friend of all time. it makes me wonder if the group collectively decided not to show his drug run bc he was soooo good to them and no one blamed him for giving into it. plus!!!!! all of them, regardless of the familial spats between them, were loyal to each other. you don't see that. they are still tight lipped about a lot on each other. take the info to the grave for real.

  • S. Williams

    you better drop those wins ok!!! it's ok that Serena surpassed her sister. wanna know who ain't mad? Venus. There was a time when Serena couldn't beat Venus and now it's changed. Their sisterhood is forever. A win for one is a win for both. always have been. always will be

  • LoneWolf86

    You're delusional and not a real tennis fan if this is what you believe. The Gold Standard for "Tennis Greatness" is the number of Grand Slams, and Serena has more than Graf. Period. End of Sentence.

  • LoneWolf86

    Serena may not have won them all in the same calendar year, make no mistake she has held all FOUR Grand Slams at one time, and she has done this TWICE. Not even the great Roger Federer or Raphael Nadal has done this. Also, Serena have won all the Women's Doubles Grand Slam Championships and they have won the Olympic Gold Medal THREE TIMES. Graf who?

  • Allihave2say

    Yeah the Internet sometimes changes what you write. However Sandra has made it appoint to promote Donald Trump on her website and to drag people who aren't supporters of his campaign and Presidency. She therefore needs to report accurate information. It doesn't matter if people are nitpickers.

  • Allihave2say

    Dang! Sensitive!

  • Emily post

    Wow Congratulations to Serena..... I remember watching her when she first turned PRO in her major competition that aired on television. They have come a long way.... Good for the both of them!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Totally agree ...

  • kimberly

    Great game William Sisters

  • Dane

    She always STILL looks super cute after a long match. It kills me lol

  • Benjamin

    ? You're cute Sandra, but the plethora of tennis legends, analysis, and articles say otherwise, but you're entitled to your FAN opinion. Nonetheless...#23, open era recond, passing Graf " Who should thank her psycho fan for stabbing her nemesis Monica Seles". ??

  • Benjamin

    ? Right. Save it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Uh huh. U tried it.

  • A D N

    When was her last win over Serena? Not causing a duvision in the sisters but it is obvious Serena is the Tennis Champion in that family.
