Serena Williams Crowned Wimbledon Champion Again

SerenaIt is Number 6 for Serena Williams.

At 33-years-young, the American defeated Garbiñe Muguruza, a first-time Grand Slam finalist 6-4, 6-4. Williams has collected 21 Grand Slam single titles and has won four straight.

Muguruza tested Williams during the match. In the first game she broke serve before Williams mounted a comeback. In the second set, the Venezuelan-born Muguruza made a charge after falling behind 5-1, but Williams broke serve in the final game to take the match.

Williams beat Maria Sharapova, her older sister Venus, and Victoria Azarenka on her way to the final match.

Williams won her first Grand Slam tournament in 1999 at the U.S. Open when she was 17 years old.

If she wins her seventh U.S. Open this fall, it will be the first time a woman has won all four major titles in the same year since Steffi Graf did it in 1988.

However,that shouldn’t be too hard for the veteran, as she has been crowned U.S. Open champion the last three years running.
