Venus & Serena Williams Make History…Again!
It was a great day in tennis for the Williams sisters.
World number one Serena Williams beat German fourth seed Angelique Kerber to win a seventh Wimbledon and 22nd Grand Slam title. Then only three hours later Serena teamed up with her sister Venus to win their sixth Wimbledon doubles championship and 14th Grand Slam title as a pair, defeating fifth-seeded Timea Babos of Hungary and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 6-3, 6-4.
“This tournament I came in with a different mindset,” says Williams speaking of her single win first. “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.”
Williams and Kerber’s fellow German Steffi Graf now tally 22 majors, the most in the Open Era of professional tennis. Talk now will surely center on the American attempting to get to Margaret Court’s 24 grand slams, the all-time record.
