Serena beats Radwanska - claims 5th Wimbledon title

6th ranked 30-year-old American Serena Williams has won her fifth Wimbledon title Saturday on Centre Court, beating 3rd ranked Polish Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2, and proudly lifted the Venus Rosewater Dish for the fifth time.

Winning the first set was easy, but the second was certainly hard like the uneaten toast left by Prince Charles many many years ago on his wedding with Diana. Radwanska fought hard and took the match to 6-5 and broke Serena serve four times to win to win the set 7-5.

But it was the third set, which Serena did not want to give away and forced Radwanska to give in 6-2 and won the Wimbledon title.

She now shared her record with big sister Venus as both have now won the Wimbledon title for five times.

Now let us wait for Sunday tomorrow ans see who amongst British Andy Murray and Swiss Roger Federer wins the men's single title. It may be added that the same scenario as of today prevails for tomorrow: Like  Radwanska , Andy Murray too eyes his maiden Wimbledon title and also wants to end a 74 years drought for his country of a Wimbledon title - and like Serena, Federer too eyes the Wimbledon title for the seventh time and equal the record held by William Renshaw and Pete Sampras.
