Serena Williams’ Wimbledon domination continues on. After beating her sister, Venus Williams, on July 6, the star athlete has now defeated Victoria Azarenka in the quarterfinals 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 on Centre Court to reach the Wimbledon 2015 semifinals.
Serena Williams, 33, has certainly slayed the competition during Wimbledon 2015 and her hard work has paid off. Because now only two matches stand between the tennis pro and her sixth title in the tournament. After wiping the floor with Australia’s Victoria Azarenka, 25, in the quarterfinals, it’s clear that Miss Williams has her fight face on — and is ready to come out on top by the end of the series.
Serena’s latest match ended the same way her last nine have — with the 33-year-old walking away a winner! She is now in the running for her fourth straight major title, making a potential Wimbledon win a “Grand Slam.”
“It’s been up and down, up and down, but somehow I’m still alive,” Serena has said of her tennis game this year. “I don’t know how. I’m just happy to be still here.” Obvi — she’s the number one player in the series!
Being the current reigning champion of the prestigious tournament, Serena’s most recent triumph might not come as a surprise — as she is arguably the most legendary female tennis player to ever exist. As of now, she holds the most major singles, doubles and mixed doubles over any other tennis player in the game right now. #CareerGoals.
After winning the Australian Open earlier this year, Serena also showed Lucia Safarova who’s boss when she beat her at the French Open, gaining her 20th Grand Slam win. But when it comes to Wimbledon, however, the 33-year-old hasn’t walked away with a title since 2012 — so today’s win is a MAJOR thrill.
Last year, she was schooled by Alize Cornet in round 3 and then was defeated by Sabine Lisicki in round 4 — clearly, making us even more proud of the way she killed her competition today.
