Serena Williams claimed her sixth Wimbledon title and 21st Grand Slam triumph after beating Gabrine Muguruza in straight sets in the final on Saturday afternoon.
Williams’ experience proved crucial in clinching the trophy, and the loss will have left her young opponent – yes, with a few tears – but with the confidence that she is certainly on par with the finest the sport has to offer.
The Spaniard was outstanding as the game started, with Williams seeming to express nerves on the big occasion; however, the World No.1 recovered from two games down to take the first set, and looked to be getting into her rhythm on centre court.
Williams went on to claim a hard-fought second set to clinch her sixth Wimbledon triumph at the age of 33.
Her victory, however, came as a shock to – not only viewers – but Williams herself with uncertainty over whether Muguruza’s ball had gone out…
Despite the 21-year-old’s loss, Williams and the crowd applauded the performance of the Muguruza, and it is certainly expected that she will one day lift the Wimbledon trophy after almost making a stunning comeback in the second set against arguably the greatest female tennis player of all time.
