Serena Williams beat Maria Sharapova to win her sixth Australian Open and 19th Grand Slam title.
The American world number one won an exciting final 6-3 7-6 (7-5).
She has now beaten Russia's Sharapova, the world number two, 16 times in a row dating back to 2004.
"I have to congratulate Maria, she played a wonderful match and she really pushed me," said Williams.
"She played so well and gave me a great final not only for the fans, but for women's tennis. I'm really honoured to play her in the final."
