Australian Open

So, Victoria Azarenka  is the new Australian Open champion. Its fascinating to note too, that now the four grand slams are held by players, who have just won their first grand slam tournament. Victoria Azarenka (Australian Open), and during 2011, Li, Na (French Open), Petra Kitrova (Wimbledon), and Sam Stosur (US Open)

Compare this to the men; where if you run the list back from here to 2004, there are only 6 names: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin Del Potro (US Open 2009), Marat Safin (Aus Open 2005), and Gastón Gaudio (French Open 2004).

Will be interesting to see how the Bryan's go, if they win tonight, I think they will equal the 12 titles won by the Woodies.
