Wimbledon 2016—London, England
Top seed Serena Williams poured in a memorable effort on Saturday at the All England Club in London, England, defeating No. 4 seed Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 to take the Championship. Needing one hour and 21 minutes to claim her seventh Wimbledon title, Williams struck 13 aces, won 88 percent of her first serve points and broke her German opponent on two of six occasions. Avenging her loss to Kerber at the Australian Open earlier this year, Williams tied Steffi Graf’s Open era record for 22 Grand Slam victories.
The American great will next set her sights on an Olympic Gold medal in Rio, which will be followed by the US Open in New York to close out the summer.
Kerber, who acquitted herself very well throughout the fortnight, fell to 1-1 in Major finals during her career.
