Serena Williams Wins Wimbledon
In 2009 headlines around the world read "Serena Williams wins Wimbledon," announcing that the tennis star had won her third Wimbledon title.
Serena Williams has become an incredible tennis player. Coincidently, tennis seems to be a family business for the Williams family, as both Serena and her older sister Venus Williams were trained in the sport by their parents.
Serena is known as one of the best players in the world, which can be largely attributed to her powerful double-handed back-hand shot. Serena's father always thought that the older sister Venus would have been the best of the two, but he soon find out otherwise.
In 2009, Serena Williams won the Wimbledon Woman's Singles Final. Not only did she win the 2009 Wimbledon Final, but she beat her sister Venus Williams for the title. After the match, Serena stated that when she went against her sister she tried to look at her as another opponent and not her sister. That strategy seemed to have worked because she achieved her goal and won.
However, one tradition that had to be changed during the match was the calling of the player's surname to award points. The two sisters could not simply go by their last name, as that would be too confusing. Instead, judges had to use first and last names.
After Serena's win, the sisters were back to being a team, they had to compete in the Wimbledon doubles championship tournament. It only took about three hours for them to go from opponents to teammate. They won their second consecutive doubles tournament, beating Samantha Stosur and Rennae Stubbs 7-6 and 6-4.
Serena Williams winning Wimbledon was a very happy to ending to her six year gap between her last Wimbledon title.
