Serena Williams posed with her Coupe Suzanne Lenglen trophy in front of the Eiffel Tower with her mother, Oracene Price, after winning the championship in the Women’s Singles final at Roland Garros on June 8 in Paris, France.

Serena defeated Maria Sharapova of Russia 6-4, 6-4 in a match that lasted one hour and 46 minutes. Serena is only the fourth woman in the Open era to win multiple singles titles at each of the Grand Slams. In a recent interview Serena said, “I think I’ve always said a champion isn’t about how much they win but it’s about how they recover from their downs, whether it’s an injury or whether it’s a loss. And I think that really creates a real champion, is how they can recover from those moments.” She has set a new record in women’s tennis for the eleven year gap between her first and second titles at Roland Garros.

In a couple of weeks Serena will be heading to London where she will try to win her sixth Wimbledon championship.
