Serena Williams sealed her 6th Wimbledon Title as she beat Spaniard Garbiñe Muguruza in straight sets in an hour and 23 minutes with a scoreline of 6-4, 6-4.

“I can’t believe I’m standing here with another Serena Slam,” Serena Williams said after doing the same as she did 5 other times in the past which is dominate the grass at Wimbledon.

With due credit to the first-time finalist, the Spanish Muguruza did put up a great fight especially in the 2nd set as she made things really interesting even though she was down  5-1 but the 20th seed won plenty of new fans with her performance at tennis’ grandest arena to forge a great fight against the number one ranked player in the world.

“Garbine played so well,” said Williams. “I didn’t even know it was over because she was fighting so hard.”

If the 33-year-old American retains the last grand slam title, the US Open, in September, she will also have a calendar-year grand slam to her name and with all the talk of the “Serena slam” in the press it will probably one of the most cherished achievements of her career and one that will certainly go in the shelves forever. Also that would put her alongside the record of 22 major titles owned by the great Steffi Graf.
