Wimbledon Results 2016: Who Won Wimbledon Women’s Final



Serena Williams conquered her 22nd Grand Slam trophy this morning to equal Steffi Graf for most Grand Slam singles tournaments won in the Open Era. Serena avenged her loss to Angelique Kerber in the Final of the Australian Open, demonstrating a steely focus en route to defeating the German 7-5; 6-3 on Centre Court at the All-England Tennis Club.

Kerber provided a worthy challenge but in the end Serena’s domination of her service games proved to be the difference. The powerful American held all her service games and only faced one break point, which she promptly responded to with a pair of aces.

Williams was drawing headlines as much for her dresses at Wimbledon as for her stellar play, but in the end it is the 34-year-old’s unmatched play throughout the tournament that strengthens her claim to being the best of all time.  With chief rival Maria Sharapova suspended for 2 years and Serena still evidently at the top of her game, the seven-time Wimbledon champ shows no sign of slowing down any time soon.

She’s scheduled to play with sister Venus in the doubles final this afternoon(!) and then will try to win her 23rd Grand Slam at the US Open in August. Margaret Court has the most Grand Slam victories of all-time, having won 24 prior to the Open Era.
