Serena wins 6th Wimbledon title

during day twelve of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 11, 2015 in London, England.
Serena Williams holds up trophy after winning her 6th Wimbledon title on Saturday

Serena Williams won her 6th Wimbledon title, to become, at the age of 33, the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam title in the Open era. She has now won seven major championships in her 30’s.

She beat 21-year old Spaniard, Garbine Muguruza 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday, after overcoming a slow start, eight double-faults and nerves towards the end of the match, to capture her fourth back-to-back Grand Slam championship and 21st major overall.

She has achieved what is being referred to as the “Serena Slam” by holding all four Grand Slam titles at once for the second time in her career.

The next Grand Slam event  is the U.S. Open and if she wins that, will become the first player to sweep all four majors in the same season since Steffi Graf in 1988.

Williams now needs just one more title win to catch up with Graf since the Open era two more before she reaches all-time leader Margaret Court Smith.

After winning the set from a 4-2 down position, Williams lost serve twice from a 5-1 lead in the second before she eventually triumphed.

    She is also a strong woman, obviously eating nutritiously to have the stamina to continue playing at 33 years of age. It is hard work and determination. It appears she will not cease playing, for a few years anyway.
    Good luck to Serena for more wins until you decide to call it a day – retire.

    In this world there are winners and losers..Life is often about competition in most areas..There is a lesson here for us..Serena is a winner because of discipline, determination, sacrifice and hard work …Are we in Dominica prepared to embrace these winning qualities??
