I know I’m probably the 49974729596734th person to use that line, in the past 48 hours, but I don’t care! My girl, Serena Williams, has finally won her 22nd Grand Slam title! She had been super close over the past 3 slams, but it appeared the pressure had really gotten to her. She adjusted her game and her mindset for Wimbledon and voila, she successfully defended her title from last year to equal the great Stefi Graf in Grand Slam Championships!
And as if that wasn’t enough, three hours after raising the Venus Rosewater Dish, Serena returned to Centre Court, with her sister Venus, and won the doubles title as well. Everything is coming up Williams Sisters!
I’m so proud of Rena. I hope this win took some of the anxiety and pressure off of her, so she can get back to how she was playing in late 2014 and most of 2015. She was carefree and enjoying the sport. And with the Olympics coming up, that’ll be needed more than ever.
Anyway, I just wanted to take time to post my excitement for Serena and Venus. My family and I are going to London next year, and we are timing it so that we can hopefully catch a match or two at the All England Club. In doing so, we would be crossing a key event off our Bucket Lists!
