Now, that’s why Wimbledon is considered the best tournament in tennis! Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber fought in the women’s singles final on July 9, but there could only be one winner — congrats Serena!
It doesn’t get much better than seeing Serena Williams, 34, when she brings her A-game and when she was in full-force when she faced Angelique Kerber, 28, at the finale of Wimbledon taking the game in two straight sets, 7-5, 6-3.
When the final point was scored during the Wimbledon women’s single’s epic finale on July 9, there was only one left standing: Serena was supreme winning her seventh Wimbledon title! You go, girl!
This was the epic rematch from the 2016 Australian Open. After failing to secure a calendar Grand Slam in 2016, exiting the 2015 U.S. Open in a heartbreaking loss, Serena hoped to kick off the 2016 with a win. Instead, she got upset by Angelique, who beat her in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4. Serena’s bad luck continued – and we don’t mean the Drake, 29, curse – as she lost the French Open to Garbine Muguruza, 22.
Angelique actually got a Williams-styled warm-up before playing Serena, as she faced Venus Williams, 36, in the Wimbledon semifinals. While some tennis fans were hoping for a Venus-Serena final, Angelique put away the five-time Wimbledon winner in two sets, 6-4, 6-4. Meanwhile, Serena tore her way through Wimbledon, dominating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 25, Svetlana Kuznetsova, 31, and Elena Vesnin, 29, to make it to the finals.
While Venus and Serena wouldn’t face each other during the Women’s singles final, they will play together in the doubles finals on July 10. After defeating Julia Goerges, 27, and Karolina Pliskova, 24, the sisters punched their ticket to the championship round to face Timea Babos, 23, and Yaroslava Shvedova, 28.
