Serena Willams Wins Another Wimbledon

Serena Williams defeated promising Spaniard Garbine Muguruza 6-4 6-4 in southwest London to complete the “Serena Slam” — winning four straight majors — for the second time in her career and is now well on the way to making more history at the season’s final grand slam.

“I can’t believe I’m standing here with another Serena Slam,” Williams, emulating her feat of 2002-2003, told the crowd.

Indeed if the American triumphs in September at the U.S. Open she would become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to achieve the calendar-year grand slam.

A victory would, too, draw the world No. 1 level with Graf on an Open Era leading 22 majors.

As if all that wasn’t enough, Williams surpassed Martina Navratilova by nearly four weeks as the oldest women’s grand slam winner in the Open Era.
