In a final that lasted only 66 minutes, Serena Williams defeated Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2 for her second consecutive and fourth career Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles title.
It’s Serena’s thirteenth career grand slam singles title, moving her ahead of Billie Jean King’s 12 in the record books, a feat which Serena mentioned in her trophy ceremony remarks.
Serena did not face a single break point during the match, which she finished off with a huge overhead smash up the middle of the court, followed by throwing her racquet into the air in joy.
In sharp contrast, Zvonareva smashed her racquet into the umpire’s chair.
The win guarantees that Serena will hang onto the No. 1 ranking at least through the US Open.
