* Serena Williams defeated Maria Sharapova to win her sixth Australian Open title on January 31,2015.
* Williams, 33, moves past Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert with a 19th major singles title.
* Williams's sixth title at Melbourne Park moved her into a tie with fellow American Helen Wills Moody in third on the all-time list after she joined Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert on 18 at last year's U.S. Open.
* Only Australia's Margaret Court (24) and Germany's Steffi Graf (22), who holds the record for the Open era, have more grand slam singles titles than the 33-year-old American.
* Williams had not lost to Sharapova since the 2004 WTA Finals, a run of 15 successive victories and was not about to let the Russian end that streak in this final.
