Serena Williams wins her 4th Wimbledon title after easing into a 6-3 6-2 win.

news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/ten...

She was imperious in her win and didn't suffer one break point by Vera Zvonareva today.

She served 9 aces (89 in all in wimbledon 2010) and 29 winners, didn't drop a set this championships and looked comfortable in this encounter against the feisty and gutsy Russian.

It's also surprising to think this is only her 6th tournament of the year and she's won two (AO and Wimbledon.)

The Number 1 seed is now 6th on the all time lists of GS winners in the women's game, going past the great Billie Jean-King and making some history in the process.

This is Serena William's day, one she'll not forget.

How many more Grand Slam singles titles will Serena Williams win before she retires? 16? 18? 20+?

Only time will tell....

It was a very poor final, watching Williams bludgen players all over the court isn't many people's idea of fun. Time she retired.

That's the stupidest piece of logic I've heard yet on 606, Tiny Tim....
laugh
So, Serena should retire because she's better than everybody else?
doh
that's like saying Federer and Nadal should retire because they keep kicking ass in the men's version of the Grand Slams....

Shivfan, Williams should retire because people hate the way she plays, nothing to do with how good she may or may not be.

Tiger: Utterly pathetic. You mean "you hate the way she plays" Her style of play is no different to Sharapova, Henin, Jankovic, Big Sis Venus, Dementieva, Wozniacki, Kuznetsova, Azarenka, Clijsters the list goes on. They all play the same way. Problem is, for you and the other haters, she plays it better than the rest of them.

Stop hating. She is the best by a long way. Move on.

Why can't an article congratulating any of the Williams sisters ever go by without someone bringing up race? Is that really what's on your mind every single time Serena wins a slam? "Yesss, she's crushing the whites and showing Black power".

With all due respect, it's kinda pathetic. Serena herself just looked normal out there and happy to be playing, I doubt she has this dominant race obsession thing going on in her mind 24/7 like some of her fans seem to. It's really sad.

Only narrow minded people hate the way Serena plays and how can she play so badly nd win 13 slams? Shame your comments are tainted by racism and if you check Venus and Serena's box at most slams they sure are not like you....

she was simply super, by far the best in her generation and what is Vera talking about that Serena is beatable..ofcourse she is, but you did not beat her...Vera,playing tenis involves a lot more than just speaking as she found out later during the doubles!

Poor attempt at reverse racism. Really poor. What is even more pathetic is when the likes of tiger tim come along without any justification say that her game is bad for tennis and the sooner she retires the better.


Considering her style of play is no different to the rest of the women on tour how else can such comments be interpreted?

So before you start lambasting those who defned the Williams you ought to ask what is behind tims and everyone elese comments.

Well said, Bremen....
ok
Over every Wimbledon fortnight, it's a regular occurrence for me - and others - to refer comments and threads to the mods, for racist abuse of the Williams sisters. 9 times out of 10, the mods agree and remove these abusive posts. Thankfully, this year there were far fewer anti-black racist comments, so there is hope for 606....
