Serena Williams wins record 22nd Grand Slam


History was made today in Wimbledon, as Serena Williams finally captured her record-tying 22nd grand slam title.

After coming up short in her last three majors, Williams defeated Angelique Kerber in the finals in back-to-back sets,  7-5, 6-3.

"It's obviously a great relief, but more than anything I think it was a really good and exciting win for me today," Williams said. "For this one I knew I just had to keep calm, be confident and play the tennis I've been playing for well over a decade."

Williams and sister Venus also won the doubles title today at Wimbledon -- the duo's sixth wimbledon doubles title and 14th grand slam.
