Serena Williams claimed her seventh Wimbledon title, after avenging her loss to Kerber in January at the Australia Open.
The top seed did not just claim her seventh Wimbledon title, she claimed a record equalling 22nd Grand Slam title.
Serena Williams defeated German Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 on the Centre Court to cement her name in the history books.
Her win at the Wimbledon last year, brought her Grand Slam total to 21. With her 22nd title eluding her ever since.
”Yeah, it’s been incredibly difficult not to think about it. I had a couple of tries this year,” Williams said during the trophy ceremony. ”But it makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked for it.”
She 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.
