A sport that can be played with a racket, as singles or doubles is generally termed as “Tennis”. This is in the list of an Olympic sport which is played among individuals of all ages and society. In such a game, The Championships, Wimbledon, is considered as the most prestigious title and is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. This tournament is very commonly known as Wimbledon. This Grand Slam tennis tournament (The 2016 Wimbledon Championships) was very recently held at Croquet Club and All England Lawn Tennis in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. This tournament started rolling from 27 June 2016 and concluded on 10 July 2016.
Serena Is Still In A Good Phase:
This year’s final rocked the whole world, with the record winning game by Serena Williams. The Wimbledon final 2016, which held this past weekend, took Serena to tie the record of Steffi Graf’s Open-era women’s singles record of 22 major championships. This was done when Serena Williams beat Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon final this past weekend. But still the best player in the world – Serena – shows a great sign of progressing her career in a positive note. This was her seventh Wimbledon singles crown, just with a close 7-5, 6-3 victory over Germany’s Angelique Kerber on Saturday.
The Very Close First Set:
The game went on very closely, where both the players threatened breaks every now and then. Initially, Williams looked frustrated and distressed which she usually does at earlier stages in close matches; but later she finished the game in a dominating manner. To start off, the first set seemed to be very close, and many might have guessed that the game might head to a tiebreaker. But, suddenly with the misjudged double faulted serve by Kerber, Williams took a lead with 6-5, this made Kerber upset and she committed some mistakes, which ultimately gave huge advantage for Williams grabbing the first set in her kitty with 7-5 lead.
Serena’s Dominance over the Second Set:
Prior facing this critical situation, Kerber had played a wondrous match, but after this point, Williams took control over the game. During the second set, Kerber saw her first break point chance on Serena’s 3-3 service game. But Williams choked the chance with her 117mph ace and made it deuce, then again with 124mph and gained advantage. The game went for a long rally, and then Kerber hit one into the net while Williams held serve. Then on the Kerber’s next service game, Serena came up with break and served the match with advantage of 5-3. Then Williams dominated the game, and too the set with a winning note of 6-3.
A Gifted Victory for Serena:
This winning might give Williams a huge relief, as she was only sitting out on 21 Grand Slam singles titles for a full year. But if some other woman in the field comes to play with the same problem as that of Williams, she might definitely not choose to play. After losing in the finals of the Australian Open and French Open finals in 2016, this Wimbledon Title would give be a great feast for her.
Serena The Woman With All Grand Titles:
Serena Williams after winning the match insisted that she was not focused on No. 22. But, later Williams raised both arms over her head and raised two fingers on every hand in that spot on Center Court to flaunt the enchantment number in the wake of winning her record-tying match against Kerber. Williams has now become one of the five women, after Margaret Court, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf and Maureen Connolly, to have all four grand slam titles at once. She also owns 13 women’s grand slam doubles with her older sister Venus. She also has won four Olympic gold medals: Singles (2012), doubles (2000, 2008, 2012).
