Melbourne, Jan. 30 (ANI): Angelique Kerber has shocked defending champion Serena Williams to claim her maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open on Saturday.

The German seventh seed claimed a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 win over world number one Serena in an enthralling summit clash that lasted two hours and eight minutes at Rod’s Laver Arena.

The 28-year-old power-hitting southpaw also denied Williams a chance to win a seventh Melbourne singles title, and to match German great Steffi Graf’s 22 Grand Slams record. (ANI)
