Wimbledon - Serena Edges Radwanska For Wimbledon Title

Just a year after suffering a possibly career-ending injury, Serena Williams won her fifth Wimbledon title at the All-England club on Saturday. Williams beat first-time finalist Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 in a surprisingly tight affair, proving that she is still a force to be reckoned with in women's tennis.

“I definitely had some lows,” Williams recalled after the match about her time in the tennis wilderness. “There was a moment I remember I didn’t leave the couch for two days. I was praying, ‘I can’t take anymore.

I’ve endured enough. Let me get through this.’ I had a tube in my stomach, it was draining constantly. I had lung problems. It was a lot. I felt I didn’t do anything to bring on that. I just felt down, in the lowest of lows.

I was ranked in the 200s. But you know? I got up and I got started.” Despite her defeat, Radwanksa was upbeat about her performance over the fortnight. “I have the best two weeks of my life,” she said. “I’ll be back to try again.” Williams will not ascend to world number one after the win, although Maria Sharapova will be replaced at the top.
