The best photos from the week in sports: 1/27 - 2/3

We're just hours away from kickoff at Super Bowl LI, but that's not the only thing happening in the world of sports right now.

One highlight from the past week (outside of Super Bowl media day, of course) was the NHL All-Star Game, which includes an enthralling skills competition.

We also saw history made as Serena Williams defeated her sister, Venus, in the Australian Open Finals to win her 23rd Grand Slam title. On the men's side, Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal.

Elsewhere in the world, there was plenty of soccer, luging and figure skating to keep sports fans of all backgrounds entertained.

Check out the slideshow above for photos from all of these events and more, and be sure to come back next weekend for our selection of the best shots from the coming week -- including the Super Bowl.
