Re: Australian Open Draws and Results 
Singles Championship Result
Alina Patersson def. Elise Mesane 7/6(0), 7/6(5)
Alina moves into some elite company with this win - first of all, Grand Slam singles winners. She captures her third Grand Slam title overall and is also the newly ranked #1 player. Elise, who was rather demure and quiet (which is much unlike her) played well to get to the final, but couldn't handle the tiebreaks against the strong Swede. Both leave Melbourne with their hearts on the court and with that, we say g'day mate and say farewell to the Aussie Open.
