LONDON -- Serena Williams insisted she was not focused on No. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Santiago-Arias-Jersey/ . 22.Said she wouldnt discuss it.Kept coming close without quite getting it.Now she finally has it. And so she can flaunt it.Williams lifted both arms overhead and raised two fingers on each hand right there on Centre Court to show off the magic number after winning her record-tying 22nd Grand Slam title by beating Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.Definitely had some sleepless nights, if Im just honest, with a lot of stuff, Williams said. My goal is to win always at least a Slam a year. It was getting down to the pressure.She pulled even with Steffi Graf for the most major championships in the Open era, which began in 1968. Now Williams stands behind only Margaret Courts all-time mark of 24.This was Williams seventh singles trophy at the All England Club -- only Martina Navratilova, with nine, has more in the Open era -- and second in a row. The victory at Wimbledon a year ago raised her Grand Slam count to 21, where it remained until Saturday.Its been incredibly difficult not to think about it. I had a couple of tries this year, said Williams, who went back on court a few hours later to win the doubles title with older sister Venus. But it makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked for it.There was a stunning loss to Roberta Vinci in the U.S. Open semifinals in September, ending Williams bid for a calendar-year Grand Slam. Then losses in finals to Kerber at the Australian Open, and to Garbine Muguruza at the French Open.Time heals, said Williams coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. By losing, you realize things.In the rematch against the fourth-seeded Kerber -- the first time in a decade two women met to decide multiple major titles in a single season -- the No. 1-ranked Williams came through. This goes alongside six championships at the U.S. Open, six at the Australian Open and three at the French Open.The 34-year-old American did it, as she often does, with nearly impeccable serving. She slammed 13 aces. She won 38 of 43 first-serve points. She faced just one break point -- at 3-all in the second set, representing Kerbers only real opening -- and shut the door emphatically with aces at 117 mph and 124 mph.There was more that Williams did well, though. Much more. Facing the left-handed Kerbers reactive, counter-punching style, Williams dictated exchanges and compiled a 39-12 edge in winners.Williams hammered second serves that floated in at 75 mph, breaking once in each set. She volleyed well, too, winning the point on 16 of 22 trips to the net, including a tap-in on match point. Soon, she was wrapping Kerber in a warm embrace, then holding up those fingers to symbolize 22.I was trying everything, but she deserved it today. She really played an unbelievable match, said Kerber, who hadnt appeared in a major final until beating Williams in Melbourne. I think we both (played) on a really high level.Kerber, a German who knows Graf well, defeated Venus in the semifinals and hadnt dropped a set until Saturday. But she could not keep up with the trophy on the line, although it was a high-quality final that was tighter than the scoreline might indicate.Played a good match, Kerber said. That makes it a little easier for me.Later Saturday, Williams earned a second piece of hardware when she and Venus defeated Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova 6-3, 6-4 for their sixth doubles trophy at Wimbledon and 14th from all majors.In singles, Williams got better as the tournament went along, taking the last 12 sets she played after dropping a tiebreaker to open her second-round match against Christina McHale. After that set, Williams smashed her racket and flung it away, drawing a $10,000 fine.There had been some thought that Williams was really stung by her loss to Vinci in New York, that it was too big a disappointment to push aside and lingered, somehow, when she followed with the setbacks against Kerber and Muguruza.If anything, I was able to show resilience that, no, thats not going to shake me, youre not going to break me, Williams said, its going to make me stronger.So, Williams was asked Saturday, is she already thinking about No. 25, to surpass Court?Oh, God, no, Williams said. One thing I learned about last year is to enjoy the moment. Im definitely going to enjoy this.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Diego-Costa-Jersey/ . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Atletico Madrid Jerseys . "I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Lucas-Hernandez-Jersey/ . After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. Selfless on the field and off it, you wont find Heath Grundy or any of Sydneys back six claiming credit for helping their side become the AFLs stingiest.Many factors have led to the Swans reaching Saturdays grand final but their defence has been immense.The minor premiers have conceded a league-best average of 9.6 goals this season.Grundy has led the way, regularly taking the oppositions most potent forward.The pressure up the ground from our forwards has a massive influence on how we go, so you cant just put it down to the back six, Grundy told AAP.Its the midfield, forwards and defenders all working together. Weve been good this year but weve got to come ready to go this weekend.The Western Bulldogs have got a variety of different avenues to goal and the way they use the ball is pretty hard to stop.The speed and precision at which the Bulldogs are capable of moving the ball has gotten the better of many sides this year.The Bulldogs lack a behemoth key forward in the mould of Taylor Walker or Tom Hawkins, who the Swans kept quiet in recent knock-out final wins over Adelaide and Geeloong. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Vitolo-Jersey/. But their forward line is nonetheless potent and there will be plenty of threats that Grundy, Dane Rampe, Nick Smith and their cohort will have to manage at the MCG.We havent come up against (a forward line like the Bulldogs) in the last couple of weeks. The thing with them is theyre all so dangerous, whether it Jake Stringer, Tory Dickson or anyone else, Rampe said.Theyve also got a lot of mids that come forward, Marcus Bontempelli can play as a tall.Their versatility is key to their game and you never feel safe against them in the defensive 50m, just becasue theyre constantly flicking it around.Stringer failed to fire in the Bulldogs epic preliminary final but Rampe, who has spent time on the star forward in the past, knows he boasts all the skills to be a match-winner on Saturday.Hes both strong and very quick, agile ... and if hes not getting near it in the first half he can still light it up after halftime and make you pay, Rampe said.
