Angelique Kerber defeated Serena Williams in three sets to win the 2016 Australia Open women’s title. Sarena was widely tipped to win her 22nd title to equal Steffi Graf’s modern era record but she fell short with [6-4],[3-6],[6-4] in three set defeat in the hands of Kerber.
Kerber was right in the game from the word go as she put pressure on Sarena throughout the game. Williams seemed to be overrawd by the surprisingly competitive Kerber who forced so many errors from Sareena. First set belonged to Kerber who clearly had Sarena in shock but when Sarena Williams raced to 4-1 in second set it looked like the normal service is about to resume. But even after losing second set, Kerber cameback harder in third to win the match and her first ever grand slam title.
