Serena Williams Wins Australian Open

ESPN.com reports that "unseeded and ranked 81st, Serena Williams won for her eighth and most improbable Grand Slam title Saturday, beating Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-2."

The article goes on to state that Serena Williams becomes only the second unseeded woman to win the Australian title in the Open era; Williams came to Melbourne Park with only three matches at a low-key warmup tournament after missing most of last season because of a knee injury. She was in top form, dismantling Sharapova in 1 hour and 3 minutes. Click here to see ESPN story in its entirety.

plez sez: Go on with your bad self, Serena Williams. You were ready to play when it counted. You have silenced your critics and it is obvious, that you are back!

Incidentally, this is my 100th blog post. One hundred threads out of a rich, colorful, and vast tapestry that is plez's world. I really didn't think I would be around this long. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and contributed to plezWorld!

If I didn't marry my wife, I would have married Serena Williams (don't tell either of them I said that)! I am thrilled that she came back and smacked that little Shara-whateva.

Congrats on your 100th!
