Serena Williams Bags 22nd Grand Slam Title, Equals Wimbledon Record




Serena Williams has won her seventh
Wimbledon title which amounts to a
total of 22 major Grand slam titles with
a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Angelique Kerber
on Saturday in London.
The world no 1 got stuck on 21 Grand
Slams since winning last
year's Wimbledon. However, she
stepped into the All England Club to
retain the title and draw level with
Steffi Graf's Open era record.

Her friends, power couple, Beyonce and
Jay-Z were in the crowd at the Centre
Court to show support to the star.
An excited Serena said, "It's a great
feeling to be here. Angelique brings out
great tennis in me," adding,

"It's been incredibly difficult not to
think about it. It makes the victory even
sweeter to know how hard I worked
hard for it. This court definitely feels
like home, I have a match later today in
the doubles, so I'll be back out."
Kerber, acknowledging Serena's victory,
notated that the vivacious athlete was
indeed a great champion.

"Serena you deserve it, you are a great
champion and great person. We played
a great match.

"It's an honour to play on Centre Court
and a great feeling."
Williams has almost equalled Margaret
Court's all-time record of 24 Grand
Slam titles.
