It wasn't one of Serena Williams' most consistent matches but after rain delays she outclassed a young opponent to win her 5th Wimbledon singles crown 6-1, 5-7, 6-2. Williams' win also made her the second player at age 30 to win a Wimbledon women's singles title other than Martina Navratilova in 1990 at 33. It was Navratilova's final Grand Slam Wimbledon singles title for a record-breaking ninth title over Zina Garrison. This won't be Serena's last, as she now becomes the No. 2 player in the world.
After winning so easily in the first set at 5-0, Serena started to lose concentration and Agnieszka Radwanska began playing better ending the first set at 6-1 on a good note by finally holding serve. Then came the rain and ground crews. Twenty minutes later the women's singles final was back on court again.
Starting the second set at 4-2, Radwanska came back mixing up pace, spin, and direction. Then the wind became a factor as well as nerves. Serena's high percentage serving waned and Agnieszka's picked up. With an opportunity to go to a second set tiebreaker on her serve, Serena was not able to deliver. Radwanska took the second set 7-5.
