Serena’s most ardent fans always knew that this day would come but did not know when “this day” would be.
And what better place than at Wimbledon, the stage of her last triumph at slams, the place that has always shown the form of tennis that she and older sister, Venus brought to the women’s game.
Her 22nd slam, one for the records, ties Steffi Graf’s record which has taken her through her home slam, the US Open, the Australian Open and the French.
And cheering her on were members of her family and the First Couple of showbiz, Jay-Z and Beyonce.
To Serena and Angelique Kerber, it’s congratulations because she was toe to toe with Serena. I’m sure Angelique’s single Australian Open victory will soon get additions. Hei, you are only 28 and still have many more years to strut your stuff.
