Tennis superwoman Serena Williams picked up her 21st major title today with her sixth Wimbledon win beating Spain’s Garbine Muguruza.
“I can’t believe I’m standing here with another ‘Serena Slam’. ”
“It’s pretty cool.”
This completes the second “Serena Slam” of her career according to VIBE with the champion holding four titles at once.
Better yet, if Williams claims victory in September at the U.S. Open (she is already a three-time defending champion), she would become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to achieve the calendar-year grand slam.
And while we’re on the subject of records, did we mention that 33-year-old Williams surpassed Martina Navratilova by almost four weeks as the oldest Women’s grand slam winner in the Open Era.
Muguruza was visibly disappointed sobbing in her chair. She started off strong, but eventually Williams woke up to claim the title. Williams had celebrity fans showing up to matches all week to cheer her on including rumored ex-love interest rapper, Drake and “Body Party” singer, Ciara.
Congrats to Serena who is serving up some major inspiration for athletes all over the world.
