Congrats Serena! MORE WIN

Serena Williams, Wilson player and two-time Olympic gold medalist, claimed the coveted Wimbledon title for the fifth time in her career today, securing her 14th career Grand Slam win and 42nd career title. She defeated Agnes Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 in a tough battle, with her Wilson Blade Team racket.

 

Williams came out strong winning the first set in just 36 minutes. After a brief rain delay, Radwanska came back winning the first game and the second set. Williams focused on her control in the third set, tying it at 2-2 and keeping the lead to win the third set and her fifth Wimbledon title.

 

“I was on my game today,” said Williams. “It has been a great two weeks of tennis for me. Wimbledon is so special and this win means even more being an Olympic year. I can’t wait to come back to the All England Club in a few weeks and compete in the Olympics.”

 

This is Williams’ 42nd WTA title and she has had a Wilson racket in hand for all her title wins. She has won more major titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles than any other active player, male or female.

 

With this win, Williams moves to no. 4 in the WTA   rankings and is the highest ranked American woman on the tour.

 

“Serena fought hard today and achieved what will no doubt be considered a pivotal win in her career,” said Renaud Vallon, global tour director of Wilson Racquet Sports. “As a long-time Wilson family member, we have seen her excel many times at this celebrated tournament; we are proud to be a part of her continued success.”

 

The Wilson Blade Team flex and pinpoint accuracy make it the racket of choice among top professionals, including Serena and her sister Venus. The larger head size provides more punch, while the lighter weight gives players greater maneuverability for hitting big shots with increased control.
