Serena moved out of a tie with Steffi Graf with her 23rd major, while Federer added to his own record with his 18th Slam.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal final was a ‘massive boost’ to the game says Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic believes the clash between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final was a ‘massive boost’ to tennis.

“Nadal, too, played very well and they both showed why they are great champions on and off the court.
It was a massive boost for tennis any way you look at it,” the world number two added.
Federer and Nadal surprised themselves when they made the final of the first Grand Slam of the year as the duo were coming back after injury lay-offs that saw them miss most of the 2016 campaign.
