Every year, the Wimbledon finals of tennis present two more champions. This year, fans were ecstatic to see some of their favorite players win a Grand Slam in England.
The Womens' Finals started with Serena Williams of America playing Vera Zvonareva of Russia. In the previous Wimbledon, Williams won first place while Zvonareva ranked twenty-first. The game this year only lasted two sets before it was over and the title of champion belonged to the winner. The score was 6-3 and 6-2 and Serena Williams took the title of 2010 Womens' Wimbledon finalist. This was her thirteenth Grand Slam (four from Wimbledon)-more than Billie Jean King. According to BBC, Williams said afterwards, "I'm happy to win thirteen. You never know what tomorrow brings and I'm happy to have gotten this far.
Meanwhile, the Wimbledon competition for men was also getting near to the Finals. Eventually, Rafael Nadal of Spain competed against Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic. Last year, Nadal didn't win first but second due to knee issues whereas Berdych won ranked twelfth. However, this time, Nadal won all three sets making the score 6-3, 7-5, and 6-4. The amount of Grand Slams he won is now a total of eight. "After not an easy year for me, to be back at my favorite tournament of the world and to play well another time, and not only play well, (but) to finish with the trophy, is amazing for me," said Nadal according to FOX Sports.
Tennis is a sport that requires a lot of dedication and hard work, even if you can't see it. Soon, it pays off and helps players win Grand Slams. After a successful year at Wimbledon, Williams and Nadal are hoping to win and play their best at the US Open this fall.
