Serena Williams has affirmed her place as one of the greatest ever female tennis players, with a record-setting afternoon at Wimbledon.
Williams beat Garbine Muguruza 6-4, 6-4, in their Wimbledon final on Saturday, marking her 4th straight victorious Grand Slam, and her 21st career Grand Slam.
Williams is now the defending champion for all four grand slams, a feat she’ll be doing the second time in her career, and which has appropriately been labelled the ‘Serena Slam.’
Williams will be looking forward to the US Open, where victory will make her the first woman to have won all four Grand Slams in the same year since Steffi Graf in 1988.
A trophy at the US Open will also put her level with Graf for most grand slams in the Open Era, and one behind all-time leader, Margaret Court Smith.
Serena, who will turn 34 in September, is also now the oldest woman to have won a Grand Slam in the Open Era.
