Pervak wins Australian Open

In her last interview, 2008 Wimbledon champion and 5th seed Laura Robson said she felt depleted, and didn't know if she had anything left to give in the junior girls final at the Australian Open. She didn't have much, as it turns out. Robson was defeated by 3rd seed Ksenia Pervak, 6-3, 6-1.

Pervak, a left-handed Russian, is currently ranked 154 in the world on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Robson is ranked 514.

Had Robson won the final, she would have become number 1 in the world in juniors.
