Venus Beats Wozniacki for 49th Career Title; Aga Beats Serena In Hopman Cup Final

Wow! Venus Williams, now 34, has started off her 2015 season with a bang, winning her 49th career title  at the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand by beating 2014 US Open finalist Caroline Wozniacki in three sets 2-6 6-3 6-3.  Williams is ranked in the Top 20 and looks fit and ready to make an impact at the first grand slam of the year in Melbourne, the Australian Open, which starts on Monday January 19. Last year Venus lost in the ASB Classic final to Ana Ivanovic in 3-sets.

Serena Williams was denied her chance to hold the Hopman Cup for the third time when she lost to  Aga Radwanska in 3-sets 6-4 6-7(3) 6-1 and together with John Isner lost their mixed-doubles match against Radwanska and Jerzy Janowicz.
