Serena Williams defeats Garbine Muguruza in the Wimbledon Ladies Final

Serena Williams has done it again.  She won the Wimbledon Ladies Final earlier today defeating Garbine Muguruza 6-4, 6-4.  This is Queen Serena’s 21st Grand Slam title.  She’s one win away from tying Steffi Graf in Grand Slam wins.

Serena Williams won her fourth consecutive Grand Slam title and 21st of her career on Saturday by beating Garbiñe Muguruza of Spain, 6-4, 6-4, at Wimbledon. It is her sixth Wimbledon championship.

Today’s win is also Serena’s 6th Wimbledon Ladies Singles title.  Serena is one win away from a Grand Slam (a sweep of tennis’s four major championships in the same calendar year).  This year she’s won the Australian Open, the French Open and now Wimbledon.  A fourth win a the U.S. Open in September will give her a Grand Slam.

With her victory at Wimbledon, Williams now holds all four Grand Slam singles titles — the so-called Serena Slam, which she also achieved over two seasons in 2002 and 2003.

But neither that run nor this one was the true Grand Slam, which requires a player to win the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the United States Open in the same calendar year.

Only three women have managed it: Maureen Connolly in 1953, Margaret Court in 1970 and Steffi Graf in 1988.

Serena was looking a little shaky in the beginning. Garbine had her number and I wasn’t surprised but it didn’t last long. I watched Garbine in the semifinal match against Agnieszka Radwanska that went back and forth between the two so I knew she would be tough.   I was a little nervous watching Serena vs Garbine at first but I was happy to see Serena make her comeback.

You know it’s getting too draining being on pins and needles watching Queen Serena in these matches and yelling at the tv.

It gets too nerve wracking and I have to hide my remote so I won’t change the channel. Will I have to go through this again when the U.S. Open starts later this summer? We will see.

Congrats to Serena and next up is the U.S. Open which starts August 31, 2015.
