Serena Williams Crushes Angelique Kerber To Claim 22nd Grand Slam Title

Serena Williams avenged her Australian Open loss to Angelique Kerber in claiming her seventh Wimbledon singles title and 22nd Grand Slam championship overall, bringing her into a tie with Steffi Graf for most all-time in the Open Era.

Williams—months from her 35th birthday—exhibited the kind of play that’s been the hallmark of her career, with devastating ground strokes and an incredible service game. The highlight of the match, though, was this 21-stroke rally that highlighted both Serena’s talent and the level of competition presented by Kerber:
