Serena Williams Wins At Wimbledon, Tying Steffi Graf’s Record Of 22 Grand Slams
We’re so proud of our girl Serena Williams who just won yet another Wimbledon tournament, this time with pal Beyoncé watching from the stands alongside Jay Z.
Via ESPN reports:
Serena Williams won her record-tying 22nd Grand Slam title by beating Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.
Williams pulled even with Steffi Graf for the most major championships in the Open era, which began in 1968. Now Williams stands behind only Margaret Court’s all-time mark of 24.
Serena Williams dominated with her serve against Angelique Kerber, slamming 13 aces and winning 38 of 43 points when she converted her first serve.
The 34-year-old American did it, as she often does, with nearly impeccable serving. She slammed 13 aces, including at least one in each of her first eight service games. She won 38 of 43 points when she put a first serve in.
She faced just one break point — at 3-all in the second set, it represented Kerber’s only real opening — and shut the door quickly and emphatically with a pair of aces at 117 mph and 124 mph, her fastest of the afternoon.
This is Serena’s 7th time winning Wimbledon and this was a consecutive win since she also had a victory here last year.
Jay Z and Beyonce sat in the same box as Serena’s mom Oracene, to watch the match. Hit the flip for more pics.
