Serena Williams’s Reaction to Winning Wimbledon Is the Absolute Cutest
Serena Williams is a superhero and a total machine in the absolute best way possible. The 34-year-old tennis legend — who’s ranked No. 1 in women’s singles in the world— just won her 22nd Grand Slam, tying tennis great Steffi Graf for the most Grand Slam singles wins ever. EVER.
Facing off against Germany’s Angelique Kerber in an action-packed match, Serena eventually took home top honors, winning Wimbledon for the seventh time in her career.
“It makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked hard for it,” she told the BBC . “This court definitely feels like home. I have a match later today in the doubles, so I’ll be back out.”
Following the historic moment, she shared the best reaction on Instagram. “22. Grand. Slam. Titles” she captioned the hilarious snap, which shows her lying on the ground, undoubtedly exhausted… and perhaps in a little bit of shock after accomplishing what she did.
Soon after the end of the match, countless celebs took to social media to share their excitement and show their support. A few also couldn’t help but point out how perfectly timed this momentous win is.
Man I'm crying. @serenawilliams just put a small bandaid on my heart! Thank you!!!! Thank you my beautiful friend!
