Serena Williams vs Victoria Azarenka Serena WinsTie Break Wimbledon 2012 Semi Finals 05-07-2012

Serena Williams won her fifth Wimbledon title after defeating Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 on Saturday.

Serena, who was playing her seventh Wimbledon final, beat Agnieszka Radwanska after a long and tough match. The 30-year-old dominated the game against her nervous opponent in the first half. However, Agnieszka Radwanska balanced her position in the game in the second set of the match. After a short interruption in the match due to rain, Serena was forced to go toe-to-toe with the Pole before winning the last five games.

The jubilant Serena Williams collapsed backwards to the court after hitting the last shot of the match. Later, she climbed through the crowd towards her family and friends.

“I can't even describe it. I almost didn't make it a few years ago. I was in a hospital but now I'm here again and it was so worth it. I'm so happy," Williams said after the match, according to a report by the BBC.

"Just never give up, you can continue. Thank you, guys in the box today, daddy, mum -- I can't name everyone one but thank you from the bottom of my heart," she added.

Serena kept herself very much in control throughout the match. She didn’t let the second set of the match fell too easily in Radwanska half. Her comeback in the match after interruption due to rain was exemplary. She took off the set from 1-2 to 6-2 to win the championship.

Radwanska was also in high spirits almost throughout the match, as this was her first ever grand slam final. She was quite content with her performance and shared, "I think I had the best two weeks of my life," Radwanska, who was suffering with illness before the match, said on court. "She was too good today but I'm just so happy to be here in the final. I think it was not my day but I'll try again next year.” Radwanska will now rise to No. 2 in the WTA rankings.

Serena Williams had been struggling with her form for the last two years. Her comeback indicates that she can earn more titles to herself from here.
