Tennis: Serena Williams first win in three years
It has been three years since tennis star Serena Williams won any title. The drought finally came to an end when she lifted the trophy at the ASB Classic after defeating fellow American Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-4.
She donated all her $43,000 (around Rs30 lacs) prize money to Australian bushfire relief.
The 38-year-old is mom to daughter Alexis Olympia who was born in September 2017.
Since her comeback, Williams has played some devastating tennis and reached the finals at Wimbledon and the US Open in both 2018 and 2019. But couldn’t lift the trophy.
Williams now will prepare for the Australian Open, a tournament she has won seven times, which begins on 20 January.
