Serena Williams has won her sixth Wimbledon crown after overcoming a stiff challenge from Spain’s Garbine Muguruza.

I can't believe I'm standing here with another Serena Slam. It is so cool.

The American had to battle back from behind in the first set to win 6-4.

The second set looked like being a walkover with Serena sprinting towards the finish but serving for the match at 5-1 she stumbled and 21-year-old Spaniard, playing her first Grand Slam final, hit back. She broke Williams twice and looked to force a decisive third set.

The world number one, however, proved again to be simply too powerful as she regained her composure to take the second set 6-4.

The win completes the so-called “Serena slam” as its her fourth successive Grand Slam title. She now holds the US, Australian and French Open titles.

“I can’t believe I’m standing here with another Serena Slam. It is so cool,” Williams said courtside.

Williams now has 21 Grand Slam titles which leaves her one behind the record haul of professional era majors held by Germany’s Steffi Graf.
