Tennis’s living legend, Serena Williams, 33, gained another one over longtime rival, Maria Sharapova, 28 heading into another Wimbledon final.
Serena now heads to the final to face Garbine Muguruza for the Wimbledon title which promises to be a great match.
Maria hoped that she could pull off another upset, just like in 2004, when she defeated Serena at Wimbledon. It was one of the biggest wins of Maria’s career. Though, since that match,
Serena has won the last 16 times she and Maria faced each other on the court. This meeting was no different. Serena easily won the first set, with a score of 6-2. Though Maria tried to rally, Serena shut her down, beating her with a final score of 6-2 and 6-4.
Though Maria tried her best, she could not overcome Serena and her incredible skills on the court. This has to sting! This loss is the second 2015 Grand Slam tournament where Serena defeated Maria, as Maria lost to the Williams sister at the Australian Open in January.
You can now add Maria’s name to the list of people that Serena has blasted through in this year’s tournament. Victoria Azarenka couldn’t slow down Serena. Heather Watson and Timea Babos fared no better, as Serena showed them and everyone why she’s possibly the best tennis player in the world.
