Don’t call it a comeback, but Serena Williams has overcome illness and defeat to win her 5th Wimbledon title. With her win today, Serena tied her older sister Venus.
”Coming here and winning today is amazing,” she said. ”It’s been an unbelievable journey for me.”
Her victory came only weeks after she’d been defeated in the first round of the French Open by an unranked competitor. Add to that the fact that Serena had battled a serious illness, and anyone can understand where the tears came from as she fell to the grass and began to cry.
“Oh my God, I can’t even describe it,” Williams said during an on-court interview after she defeated Radwanska, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2, on Centre Court.
Her reaction via Twitter was equally ecstatic: “ Yeaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaa.”
