Well, the Australian Open has been over for several days and I've seen plenty of news stories about Roger Federer winning his 16th Grand Slam title, beating Andy Murray 6-3, 6-4, 7-6. But what I haven't seen a whole lot of is anyone commenting on the fact that Serena Williams won both the women's singles AND doubles titles. Again. Just as she did last year.
Am I the only person who thinks this is a remarkable feat? I'm sure if Roger Federer had won the men's singles AND doubles titles, we would hear no end to what a miraculous accomplishment that was.
Anyway, congratulations to Serena who just becomes more and more impressive in my book. And, let me also point out how much I loved what she was wearing. I'm sure lots and lots of those dresses will be sold. The Maria Sharapova dress, on the other hand, will be available at 75% off in just a few more weeks. (FYI – the Serena dress was also $20 cheaper at my fav tennis shopping spot!)
Here's Serena in her great Australian Open 2010 dress:
