Two incredible finals were played this weekend and two unbelievable athletes were crowned winners of this year’s Wimbledon!
After the heartbreak of losing our British hopeful Andy Murray and the loss of one of the biggest names in the game, Maria Sharapova, the finals were bound to be a shock.
Serena Williams was looking to achieve her 21st grand slam whilst Roger Federer was aiming for his 8th Wimbledon title and with the likes of Novak Djokovic and 21 year old Garbine Muguruza standing in their way, who knows what would happen…
With centre court thriving at 2pm on the dot, it was time for Serena to make her mark. With Muguruza trying her best to break the formidable Williams with some truly amazing shots, it was to no avail. In front of millions of people, celebrities galore and tennis royalty, Serena smashed her way to victory winning in straight sets, (6-4, 6-4), and in the process achieving the Serena Slam (all four Grand Slam titles). Undoubtedly the best female tennis star of all time, all hail Queen Serena!
And so came the big one, the last day of Wimbledon and the one everybody had been waiting for, the men’s final. Would Djokovic reign supreme or would the king of grass take lead once more?
After a thrilling first set tiebreak Djokovic took the lead but Federer looked to be coming back with some incredible smashes and a brilliant second set win. With an early break, Djokovic took the third set and as they say the rest was history, he charged for the win and after 2 hours and 56 minutes the Serb won Wimbledon and his ninth Grand Slam title with 3 sets to 1 (7-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-3).
No doubt Novak and Roger will both be back to contest the prestigious title next year and we cannot wait!
