Williams beats Kerber in Wimbledon final

American claims seventh title at SW19

Serena Williams beat Angelique Kerber 7-5 6-3 in the final of Wimbledon to claim her 22nd career grand slam title.

The 34-year-old finally equalled Steffi Graf's record after 12 months without a grand slam victory, claiming her seventh Wimbledon title with a straight sets win over Kerber.

The German, who beat Williams at the Australian Open in January, was only broken once in either set but was unable to threaten the Williams' serve, managing just one break point opportunity in the American's 13 service games.

"First of all I would like to say congrats to Serena. You really deserve it, you are a great champion, a great person and it is always an honour to play against her," Kerber said afterwards.

"It is the best feeling to play here on Centre Court, you guys are amazing.

"It is an honour to play here on this court and I would like to say thank you to my box, you are amazing, I have the best team and sometimes I am not so easy but you always believe in me."

Williams was delighted to finally equal Graf's record, 17 years after her first grand slam win at the US Open in 1999.

"It's been incredibly difficult not to think about it. It makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked hard for it," she said.

"This court definitely feels like home, I have a match later today in the doubles, so I'll be back out. I don't know what else to say, I'm so excited."
