Serena Williams has secured an Open-era record 23rd grand slam title by beating her older sister Venus to become Australian Open champion.

Before the match started, no one could decide just who they wanted to win out of the two much-loved sisters.

Venus got off to a strong start, whereas Serena seemed a little nervous.

No one could handle the emotional rollercoaster that the match proved to be as the two siblings battled it out on the court.

Literally, look at the passion…

As the game progressed, it became clear that Serena was on her way to winning – which meant that she was finally going to beat Steffi Graf’s 22 Gland Slam title record.

…and she did!

Serena now stands just one Gland Slam short of Margaret Court’s all-time best of 24.

That celebration though…
