Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams show off their Wimbledon trophies.

Tennis goddess Serena Williams, the world No. 1 player, just scored her 21st Grand Slam title and her 6th victory at Wimbledon. The 33-year-old legend defeated 21-year-old Garbiñe Muguruza of Spain in the Wimbledon women’s final, with a 6-4, 6-4 victory.

The Grand Slam tournaments, also known as the Majors, are the four key tennis events of the year. After winning last year’s U.S. Open, and the Australian and French Opens this year, Williams conquered the oldest tennis tournament in the world at the 2015 Wimbledon. Ever since 1877, the Wimbledon has been held in London, and Williams is certainly looking to enter the tennis history books.

If Williams wins this year’s U.S. Open in September, she’ll be the first tennis player to win all four majors in one year since Steffi Graf in 1988. As for the men’s singles, Novak Djokovic scored his 3rd Wimbledon title by defeating Roger Federer  7-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-3.
