Serena Williams powered to her seventh Wimbledon crown as the world number one finally claimed a record-equaling 22nd major title with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Angelique Kerber in Saturday’s final.
Serena was pushed hard by Kerber in a high-quality clash lasting 81 minutes on Centre Court, but the German fourth seed eventually crumbled under a barrage of 39 winners and 13 aces from the defending champion.
"It’s a great feeling to be here. Angelique brings out great tennis in me," said Serena.
Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon title and third Grand Slam. But still British number one is likely to need to win September's US Open and the ATP World Tour Finals in December to move anywhere near 29-year-old Djokovic, who has held the top spot since July 2014.
