Serena said she always wanted whatever her older sister Venus had and today she followed in Venus’ footsteps by claiming her 5th Wimbledon win.
Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska put a great fight in the final but Serena took the title with 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
Serena and Venus Williams have now won 10 out 0f the last 13 Wimbledon ladies singles finals – a great achievement. The sisters could go on to bring home more titles from Wimbledon tonight as they play in the womens doubles champion.
Serena’s title is made even more sweet considering the ordeal she had recently suffered in hospital which she described
I had a tube in my stomach and it was draining constantly. I had a blood clot, lung problems, and I couldn’t do anything. I felt at the lowest of lows.
John McEnroe commented
I believe that you are watching the greatest women’s player that has ever played this game.
..so now you see why those hip-hop folk are fighting over Ms Serena!
