Williams beats Henin, retains Australian title

Serena Williams has won her fifth Australian Open title, beating Belgian comeback player Justine Henin in the final.
Williams had a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 win at Rod Laver Arena on Saturday to successfully defend her Australian title and collect her 12th Grand Slam singles championship.
The 28-year-old American had won her previous four titles in Melbourne in each odd-numbered year since 2003.
Henin was two tournaments into a comeback and in her first major since the 2008 Australian Open. The seven-time Grand Slam winner quit while holding the No. 1-ranking a few months later.
