Serena Williams Wins Seventh Wimbledon Title, 22nd Slam by newsrepublique: 4:58pm On Jul 09, 2016
Serena Williams’ chase for Grand Slam singles title No. 22 is finally over.

After coming up short in three consecutive majors, Williams tied Steffi Graf’s mark with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Angelique Kerber in Saturday’s Wimbledon final.

In a tight, high-quality match, the best server in the history of women’s tennis ultimately prevailed over one of the game’s top returners.

Kerber won the opening coin toss and elected to receive, as she had broken Williams five times to win the Australian Open final earlier this year. She would have no such luck Saturday. Williams dominated on serve, firing 13 aces, winning 88 percent of her first-serve points and only allowing one break point throughout the entire match.

Kerber held her own, though, staying dedicated to her game plan. After saving three break points in her opening service game, Kerber got into a rhythm. She drew Williams into rallies, which she dominated by making Williams chase the ball from side-to-side.

Needing to hold to stay in the opening set with Williams up 6-5, Kerber finally blinked and Williams moved one set closer to the title.

The quality continued into the second set, with Kerber trying her best to push Williams off her game. Kerber earned her first break point of the match at 3-3, but Williams closed any opening she had with an emphatic ace.

But Williams would not be denied, breaking Kerber at 4-3. After holding strong to win her seventh Wimbledon title, Williams fell to the ground in celebration, and perhaps, a bit of relief.

The legend grows.

Serena is warmly congratulated at the net by Kerber after winning her 22nd Grand Slam title.
Saturday’s win was Williams’ unprecedented ninth title over the age of 30. She now stands side-by-side with Graf for most major titles in the Open era, and is only two titles behind Margaret Court’s all-time mark.

Williams’ Wimbledon run is not yet over, as she and her older sister Venus will try for another doubles title later in the day.

Thse are the qualities of the people left on Nairaland. Gone are the the days. What we have now are children who the parents buy laptops and phones for.
