Long way to go to catch Court
Victoria Azarenka won her second Australian Open title on Saturday, but she still has a long way to go to catch Margaret Court. No woman has won Down Under more than the Australian Court, and her bookend wins were especially noteworthy. In 1960, Court lost in the girls’ singles final but rebounded the following day to win the women’s final. That victory was the first of seven straight. And in 1973, after taking a year off for the birth of her first child, she returned to the major tournament and won her 11th and final Australian singles title.
