The New Australian Open Queen
After thirteen days of incredible action between the best athletes in Tennis, the Australian Open Ladies Singles Championship has completed, and Sofia Kenin has come out victorious. Standing at twenty-two years of age, she won her 1st Grand Slam Championship against Garbine Muguruza. Neither one of these women were the expected WTA athletes for this matchup. However, after both displayed formidable mental strength and physical capabilities, they entered the finals. Sofia Kenin has obtained her 4th career title following the 2020 Australian Open.
When it applies to the woman who one the Ladies Doubles Championship at the Australian Open, it was Nikola Mektic and Barbora Krejcikova that acquired this title. It required them to defeat notable WTA athletes, Jamie Murray and Bethanie Sands. Nikola and Barbora performed three incredible sets in the final round. Agnieszka Radwanska would’ve been the partner to Bethanie Sands if it wasn’t for becoming pregnant in 2018. Beth would’ve had a far superior chance at winning this title if she had the partnership of Radwanska.
