Serena Williams Makes History with 22 Grand Slam Titles

Serena Williams Wimbledon
Serena Williams will go down in history as the best female tennis player of all time, thanks to her 22nd grand slam title she took home after winning Wimbledon…again.

The 34-year-old sports star took home her title on Saturday (July 9) by beating Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon final and is ready to enjoy the spoils that her victory will bring. “One thing I learned about last year is to enjoy the moment,” Williams told CNN. “I’m definitely going to enjoy this.”

Williams may have faced her share of obstacles to overcome, like being beaten at the Australian Open and French Finals this year, but she didn’t let them deter her one bit. “I have definitely had some sleepless nights with a lot of stuff, coming so close and feeling it and not being able to get there,” Williams told reporters, according to CNN.

“This tournament I came in with a different mindset. In Melbourne I thought I played well but Angelique played great, and better. So I knew going into this one I needed to be calm and be confident and play the tennis I’ve been playing for well over a decade.”

The champ posted a photo of herself just after the match, sprawled out on the court, along with the caption, “22 Grand Slam Titles”.

What makes the moment even sweeter is that Serena got to share it with her big sister Venus, when both ladies captured the Wimbledon doubles title for a sixth time:
