Serena Williams heaped praise on beaten finalist Justine Henin after retaining her Australian Open title with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 win.
Serena had a tough match against Henin on her way to clinch the title of Australian Open. She defeated her rival after they played three sets 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. It is Serena’s 12th Grand slam title. Through out the game she proved to be aggressive and attacking. Henin played a more defensive game against her strong opponent.
The opening was not very strong for Serena and Henin managed to stick to the game well. Surprisingly Henin put up a strong and competitive performance to get the second set. Serena Williams came back stunningly in the third set and played an unbelievably power game to basket the third set. Her style of playing supported her being the greatest champion.

Her master strokes even earned the appreciation from her opponent Henin who said Serena was an excellent player and a true champion. Serena Williams has been consistently good on the court and has outplayed all the other female players of the game so far.

She is firm, strong, smart and tough. At times it is her grit to analyze the game well and apply her mind to win through the difficult situations. She did have some testing years in the past where she was written off by the media as ‘over’. But she exhibited extraordinary brilliance to rise to the top again and silence her critics.
