Aussie Open Winners

After Serena Williams was upset by 19-year-old upstart Sloane Stephens, the Aussie Open was blown wide open. But, quickly restoring tennis to its normal routine of the most experienced wins it all, Victoria Azarenka defeated Stephens to go onto the finals. Pitted against Chinese Li Na, who crushed Maria Sharapova, the Women's Finals was sure to be interesting. Azarenka beat Na in a 3-set match that last just under three hours. The win here was her second straight Aussie Title.

The men's match-up was no less interesting. Two tennis greats, Novak Djokovic played Andy Murray for the title. Murray had a stunning 2012, with a gold at the 2012 London Olympics. But Djokovic outplayed him in a five-set duel. Famous for ripping his shirt after a tough win in the semis, Djokovic seemed pretty content with his third straight title.
