Angelique Kerber wins (Women) Australian Open

January 30, 2016

Angelique Kerber won her first Grand Slam tennis title dispatching the incredibly poor choice as Sports Illustrated’s top athlete of 2015, Serena Williams, in straight sets to win the women’s title at the Australian Open.

Kerber, over a 7 to 1 “man to man-or woman to woman” (Cara Miller on Innovation Hub said woman as I wrote it.) underdog winning means there will be no “calendar Grand Slam” title for Williams.

There will be less hype surrounding her which is better for all concerned, perhaps most important, to Ms. Williams.

Given the title winning year and subsequent great start that Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors led, I still find it an inexcusable “joke” that the once fine “Sports Illustrated,” named Williams its “Sportsman/woman/person” of 2015.
