Women’s Wimbledon Final Results

For the seventh time, Serena Williams is the champion of Wimbledon, defeating a game Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 with a remarkable display of dominant tennis.

Here’s her championship moment:

After a close first set, Williams grabbed the only break in the 12th and final game to take an early 7-5 advantage. The World No. 1 overpowered her opponent, hitting eight aces and 24 winners.

It wasn’t until the seventh game of the second set that Kerber actually got a break point, but that appeared to set Serena into overdrive, as she promptly responded with two aces and three-straight points to hold for the 31st consecutive time.

Williams followed that game with a break, and serving for the match, she fired out four-straight points to capture Grand Slam title No. 22.

The final score reads as a straight-set victory, but in reality it was much closer than that. Kerber was excellent for most of the match, but ultimately, as she has done so many times before, Williams proved why she’s the best player in the world.
