The Serena slam: Serena Williams wins her 6th Wimbledon title

In her long and ever more remarkable career, Serena Williams has won all the major tournaments at least three times. She has won Olympic gold in singles and doubles. She has won WTA Tour events large and small.

But what she has not yet managed is a Grand Slam: winning the Australian Open, the French open, Wimbledon and the United states open in the same calendar year.

Williams’s 6-4, 6-4 victory over Garbiñe Muguruza of Spain in the final here on Saturday gave Williams her sixth Wimbledon singles title and her fourth straight major singles title — the so-called Serena Slam.

But it also gave her the first three legs of the Grand Slam, the true Slam, which could make this year’s United States Open quite an occasion.
