Last Saturday finished the Wimbledon Championship, where Serena Williams won her 22nd Grand Slam. This is the absolute record in her career. Not to mention that she and her older sister Venus Williams also won the Women Doubles in the final. (That game was absolutely EPIC).
Serena Williams is arguably the best female tennis player of all time. At the age of 34, she still has the skills to win championships; even with younger players coming through, her sheer will and dominant energy prove unbeatable.
With the Wimbledon Championships this weekend and the US Open approaching in August, tennis is in the heart of its slam season. Tennis fans wax poetic about tennis, often because it is the sport that most closely resembles life.
I've watched Federer reinvent tennis (and himself) countless times over the last decade and a half. And yet, I still found myself in awe when the Swiss Maestro captured his 20th Grand Slam at the 2018 Australian Open with a masterclass display.
