Serena Williams battled back in the third set against Poland's Agnieska Radwanska to capture her fifth Wimbledon Championship on Saturday by a final of 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
Williams dominated the first set, but after a short rain delay, Radwanska shifted her focus and battled through the second set to put the pressure on the American.
Serena quickly rallied to turn the tides, however, and was able to pull past Radwanska during the third set. Radwanska had been playing steadily and forcing Williams to make mistakes, but the American's emotions settled as she began picking up points with her power shots as she did earlier in the match. Radwanska eventually gave way, finishing as the 2012 Wimbledon runner up.
Williams now has 14 Grand Slam singles titles, the same number as Pete Sampras.
