Williams routs Sharapova, wins eighth Grand Slam title

Serena Williams won her eighth and most improbable Grand Slam title, overwhelming top-seeded Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-2 in the Australian Open final on Saturday.
Williams became only the second unseeded woman to win the Australian title in the Open era, coming into the tournament ranked No. 81 after spending most of 2006 on the sidelines with a knee injury.
It was her first title in 15 tournaments since winning the 2005 Australian Open.
