Serena Williams won a historic 22nd Grand Slam title beating Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.

women's finalFor the third successive Grand Slam a first time champion was crowned as no.4 seed Garbiñe Muguruza played some spectacularly gutsy tennis today to upset arguably the greatest female tennis player of all time, Serena Williams, in the Final of the 2016 French Open.
