Serena Wins The Australian Open

Serena Williams just completed her domination of the Australian Open this morning by taking the singles championship less than a day after winning the doubles with her sister Venus. She took the court against a game Dinara Safina, and in under an hour literally reduced her to tears in a 6-0, 6-3 shellacking.
Serena not only seized hold of the number one ranking in the world, but with the convincing nature of her run, and the fact that she has won the last two Grand Slams, has begun to bring some sort of order to the women's tennis world.
It works like this: Serena number one, everyone else chases her. No more of this ridiculous Who's On First routine at the top of the women's rankings. If Serena stays healthy, and more importantly focused, there's no woman out there that is even close. I'll give you a first hand, up close bulletin on how her game looks in March at the BNP Paribas Indian Wells tournament, so you've got that going for you (free home roasted coffee to whoever gets that movie reference first)
