Serena Wins Wimbledon 2016 title

Serena Wins Wimbledon 2016 title

Serena Williams defeated Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 to clinch the Wimbledon 2016 title on Saturday, successfully defending her SW19 crown and claiming her first major victory in 12 months.

Saturday’s win also meant Williams equalled Steffi Graf’s record for the most Open era Grand Slam titles won by a female player. 
Williams’ first victory of 2016 finally brings in a cherished 22nd major title, level with Graf, but the pressure is now on to see if she can finish the year stronger than the fashion in which she began it.

For the third time in her career, Williams has sealed back-to-back Wimbledon titles, and it would mark a first for the American if she could complete the hat-trick in 2017.
