Angelique Kerber leapt into murky surroundings Sunday, just hours after she became the first German since 1999 to win a Grand Slam tennis title by defeating world No. 1 Serena Williams at the Australian Open.However, by producing superb defense along the baseline chasing down Williams' blistering groundstrokes and forcing the American to play one extra shot, she proved the 21-time Grand Slam winner was fallible. That resulted in unforced errors, something Williams had not been forced to do through her run to a seventh Australian Open final.Williams produced 23 unforced errors in the first set of the final, which gave Kerber all of the momentum she needed, knowing that battling back from a set down would be tough against one of the game's best closers.
