Serena Williams – Still the best

Serena’s ranking is a lot like her game. She puts it out there and challenges the world to take it away. As she proved in the 2009 Australian Open, she is the force to beat in Women’s Tennis.

Serena started slowly in the Australian heat and was fortunate to turn back a trio of hard hitting Russian challengers en route to a stunningly convincing 6-0, 6-3 final match victory over third seeded Dinara Safina. The impressive march to the championship was filled with adversity including a near upset by eight seeded Svetiana Kuznetsova in the quarter-finals and a tight semi-final match against fourth seeded Elena Dementieva.

The 2009 Australian Open had remarkable similarities to Serena’s overall career. Originally overshadowed by her older sister, Venus, Serena has always been able to rise to the occasion and claim her rightful spot.

As the Melbourne tournament unfolded, Serena got better and better with each round. By the time she reached the finals, there was no turning her aside. Her powerful serve and ground strokes seemed to wear down the opposition.

Serena Williams is a champion with a strong will to win and an equally generous spirit. Her persona and public image is larger than life. As a result many fans find it difficult to relate to Venus’s younger sister and best friend.The present top ranked player joins an elite group of seven other women to win 10 or more Grand Slam singles tournaments.

Serena has captured four Australian Opens. After her win over Safina, Williams rejoiced in her typically straight-forward manner proclaiming, “I always believe I’m the best, whether I’m number one or whether I’m a hundred. Just having that extra bonus is pretty cool.”

As long as Serena is on the tour, players like Safina, Kusnetsova and Dementieva will be under pressure to elevate their play to remain competitive.

Coupled with her 2008 U.S. Open Championship, Serena has now won consecutive Grand Slams for the first time since 2003. Serena did not perform up to her usual standards at the French Open in Paris in 2008, the site of the year’s next Grand Slam. Uncharacteristically she bowed out in the third round. The younger Williams has set her sights significantly higher this year.

If Serena wins on the slower French clay courts, move over tennis world. Fans could well expect to see a Grand Slam sweep in 2009. As unpredictable as Women’s Tennis can be, it is certain that Serena Williams will show up, will post her lofty credentials and challenge the field to overcome her. As everyone at Melbourne learned, that is no easy task.
