Another Wimbledon title for the Williams family

| No Comments

Serena Williams, 30, took her fifth Wimbledon title Saturday, reported the Star Tribune.
She beat Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland for the championship title making it 10 Wimbledon titles total for Serena and her sister Venus, reported the Star Tribune.

Serena had been away from tennis for about a year after she won the Wimbledon in 2010 from a foot injury and a pulmonary embolism that prevented her from playing, reported the Los Angeles Times.

"A few years ago, you know, I was in the hospital, and now I'm here again. It's so worth it, and I'm so happy," Serena said according to the LA Times.

Serena is the first woman since Martina Navratilova, to win a Wimbledon title at age 30 or older, reported the Star Tribune. Navratilova won in 1990 when she was 33.
