Moments ago, Williams claimed her 22nd Grand Slam title, beating Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3. With her 22nd Grand Slam title under her belt, Williams is now tied with former German tennis player Steffi Graff. Williams was previously defeated by Kerber earlier this year, causing her to lose a Grand Slam final. But today’s match proved Serena to be a fighter.
In the eighth game of the final set, Serena secured her victory with a forehand volley move. “It makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked for it,” said Williams in a press conference.
