The German pulled off an incredible 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 win over the world No1 to secure her first grand slam title and deny Williams a record-equalling 22nd


The 28-year-old becomes the first German to win a women's major singles final since Steffi Graf claimed the French Open in 1999.
An emotional Kerber said it had been a lifelong dream to win a major.
"My whole life I was working really hard and now I am here and I can say I am a grand slam champion," she said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
"So it sounds really crazy and unbelievable. Of course I would like to say thank you to my team, to my team who are supporting me like my whole life, my family."
Kerber admitted she thought she would make a first-round exit at Melbourne Park when she was down a match point in her opening match against Misaki Doi.
"When I played here the first round, I was match point down so I was actually with one leg playing, on the plane to Germany," she said.
"I think I got a second chance and I take my chance to be here in the finals to play against Serena and I am honoured to be here in this final and to win it ... it is my dream come true tonight on this night."
Williams paid tribute to Kerber, whose best finish at a major prior to this fortnight had been semi-final appearances at Wimbledon and the US Open.(Source-Internet)
