Serena Williams won her 19th Grand Slam title today, continuing her unbeaten run in six Australian Open finals and extending her decade-long domination of Maria Sharapova with a commanding 6-3, 7-6 (5) win. Williams, coughing frequently and still affected by a recent cold, controlled the first set around a rain delay in the sixth game, when the match was stopped for 13 minutes for the roof to be closed.
