YOU GO GIRL!!

Just as folks started to write her off in the Wimbledon championshop series, Williams proved that although she may be down, she’s not out!

“A few years ago, you know, I was in the hospital, and now I’m here again. It’s so worth it, and I’m so happy.”

Williams is the first woman in her 30s to win a Wimbledon title since Martina Navratilova, who won at the All England Club in 1990 when she was 33.

On Saturday, Williams finished with 17 aces — including four in one game — and a record 102 for the tournament. After the match, Serena celebrated with her sister, Venus, who also holds five Wimbledon titles.

This was Serena’s first Grand Slam title since she won at the All England Club two years ago. Shortly after winning that title, Williams cut her feet on glass at a restaurant, leading to a series of health problems, including being hospitalized for clots in her lungs.

“I never dreamt of being here again, being so down,” Williams said. “Never give up. You can continue.”
