Wimbledon 2012: Serena Williams Wins Fifth Championship

After two phenomenal weeks of tennis at Wimbledon, Serena Williams has emerged as the winner on the ladies' side of the annual event. Williams defeated No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska in three sets to claim her fifth championship in six appearances at the championship match of Wimbledon, and she did so in convincing fashion.

Williams took the first set 6-1, and most felt the match would be over sooner than later at that point. Radwanska rallied nicely in the second set to keep her hopes alive, and she rallied late to end up winning 7-5 to force a third and final set.

It was all Williams in the third, winning 6-2 in front of a crowd of thousands. Her victory marks the most in women's history on the grass of Wimbledon.

The men's title match will be played on Sunday morning. It'll be Roger Federer vs. Andy Murray in what should be a great day for tennis.
