Serena Williams Wins Wimbledon, Surpasses Billie Jean King

RedTracker| Serena Williams won a comparatively easy, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Vera Zvonareva of Russia on Saturday to capture her fourth Wimbledon singles crown.

Winning her 13th Grand Slam title, Serena Williams moved into sixth place on the women’s all-time Grand Slam singles list. She surpassed Billie Jean King (who had 12) but with a long road to surpass Australia’s Margaret Court still owns the record, with 24, which she won from 1960 to 1973.

Steffi Graf is second with 22, winning her final Grand Slam title at the French Open in 1999. California’s Helen Wills Moody won 19 from 1923-1938. Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova are tied with 18 singles titles apiece. via NYTimes
