Today’s win at Wimbledon is Serena’s 7th which ironically also ties her with Graf for second all-time behind Martina Navratilova’s nine Wimbledon titles.

According to the Guardian, the win was hard-fought, but that in the end Williams’ serve was just too strong. Williams reportedly went 30 straight service games without facing a break point during the tournament.

“I had a couple of tries this year, I lost to two great opponents—one of them actually being Angelique,” Williams said after the match. “It makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked for it.”
