Serena Williams Wins 4th Australian Open And 10th Grand Slam

Tennis champion Serena Williams beat Russian player Dinara Safina on Saturday with a 6-0 6-3 victory to win the Australian Open crown and earn $2million, topping the list of prize-winning women in sports.

Serena payed hommage to tennis legend Billie Jean King, a lifelong advocate against sexism who paved the way for women to compete and earn prizemoney equivalent of male counterparts.
