Serena Williams triumphed in a Wimbledon final again on Saturday with a terrific victory over Angelique Kerber.
Here is a look in numbers at how the American made history:
22 – Williams has now equalled Steffi Graf’s haul of grand slams, the most achieved by any player in the open era (since 1968).
7 – She has matched Graf’s seven Wimbledons too, but Martina Navratilova sets the standard with nine triumphs.
304 – This was Williams’ 304th grand slam singles match victory, second only among women to Navratilova, whom she trails by two wins.
34 – Williams is the oldest woman to win a singles grand slam in the open era, and the oldest world number one.
2,000,000 – Prize money, in British pounds, that Williams will bank for her success. Just don’t mention the exchange rate.
9 – Since teaming up with coach Patrick Mouratoglou she has won nine out of 17 grand slams.
124 – An ace crunched down at 124 miles per hour was the fastest by any woman in the championships.
13 – Williams fired down 13 aces in all, to none from Kerber.
88 – Percentage of points won by Williams when she landed her first serves.
21 – A high unforced error count, 21 compared to Kerber’s nine, did not prevent Williams storming to victory.
39 – The winners flowed from Williams, with 39 to Kerber’s 12 showing which player was taking on the big shots.
