Serena Williams, who missed the Australian Open with a sprained right ankle, became the first woman in the Open Era (before 1968) and the in tennis history to win the "Old World" -- taking the championships of Italy, France and England in the same season.
CONGRATULATIONS SERENA! :)

Congrats to Serena but I never knew this concept existed :eek:

Actually Serena is the second in the Open era to complete the Old World triple. Chris Evert also did it in 1974.
Great job Serena!
