Age not just a number as Super Serena marches on

Age not just a number as Super Serena marches on

By Melanie Burton

MELBOURNE, Jan 23 (REUTERS) It was back in 2003 that Serena Williams first stamped her name on Australian Open history, the then 21-year-old taking down sister Venus to bring home her first title on the blue courts of Melbourne Park.
Fourteen years on, the American is gunning for her 23rd grand slam title, and, at 35, is now among the oldest players left in the draw having fought off 16th seed Czech Barbora Strycova over two sets today.
