Serena defeats Venus for third Wimbledon title

Serena Williams was crowned Wimbledon ladies' champion for the third time after defeating sister and 2-time defending champion Venus 7-6 (3), 6-2. She now owns 11 major titles and currently holds 3 out of the 4 majors including the U.S. Open, Aussie Open, and now Wimbledon.

The match was short on long rallies as both ballers played aggressively from the first point. In the end, ReRe's more consistent serving gave her the decided advantage: she hit 12 aces (72 for the tourney), 61% success on first serve deliveries, no double faults, and lost a total of 8 points on serve - gawdy stuff indeed. Moreover, she hit 25 winners against only 12 errors compared to V who hit only 14 errors but bagged 18 errors.
