Serena Williams captures her 5th Wimbledon title

Serena Williams gets her fifth Wimbledon title with a 6-1 5-7 6-2 win over Agnieszka Radwanska. The 30 year-old Serena wins her 14th Grand Slam title and will become world  No.4 on Monday (Radwanska will be No.2 behind 1-ranked Victoria Azarenka and ahead of  No.3 Maria Sharapova).
On her interview during trophy cerimony, Radwanska said she had the best two weeks of her life. "I'm just happy to have been here in the final", she said, while trying to hold her tears.

Serena, who will also play in a few hours the Ladies' Doubles final with sister Venus Williams, applauded her opponent: "It was really tough. Aggie played so well. That's why she's had such a great career so young." About her fifth Wimbledon title she stated: "OMG I can't even describe. I almost didn't make it a few years ago I was in hospital and now I'm here again. So worth it." As soon as she hit her winner match-point, she went running into the stands to hold her father, mother and sis. She now equals her sister Venus in Wimby titles. "I've always wanted everything Venus had", Serena joked. Later on, they will have the chance to win a Championships title together!
