GHANA TRIP HELPED ME – SERENA
Tuesday, 13 February 2007
Finally, after years of ambiguity and doubt, Serena Williams scored an amazing emotional victory to win this year’s Australian Open, obliterating Maria Sharapova 6-1 6-2 in the Women’s Singles final.

Her show of determination, power and passion that eclipsed anything the former world No 1 had previously achieved. Her performance proved that she still remains potentially one of the most formidable force in women tennis.

Persistent wrist problems prevented Serena’s sister, Venus, from playing in Australia, but a trip to Ghana in November last year revitalised Serena.

“I saw things there that my ancestors had been through and it couldn’t be worse than that,” she said. “I thought about that and I think it helped me a lot.”
