Serena Wins Australian Open Women's Single to move into 10 Slam wins

Serena Williams routed Dinara Safina 6-0, 6-3 Saturday to win the Australian Open for her 10th Grand Slam title and a return to the No. 1 ranking.
It was total domination for the second-seeded Williams, who looked at ease in winning back-to-back majors — she won the U.S. Open championship in September — and was moving fluidly on the court.

Williams' near-perfect performance was in sharp contrast to No. 3 Safina, who was tight from the start. Later apologizing to the crowd for her performance, Safina said Williams was just too good, leaving her feeling like a ballboy.
I didn't even continued with the match after the middle of second set, simply because I don't feel Safina can fight her way back and also I wanted to go for my badminton session although I would prefer Safina to capture her first ever slam title in her 2nd grand slam final appearance. Let's hope she can rise up again in 2009 and be finally 3rd time lucky if she enters into another slam title match :)
