Angelique Kerber beats Serena Williams to become Wimbledon champion

Published: Updated:

Germany’s Angelique Kerber stunned American Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 on Saturday to win her first Wimbledon title.

Seven-times champion Williams had been bidding to claim a record-equaling 24th Grand Slam crown but made too many errors as Kerber ran out a comfortable winner in the final.

Kerber looked understandably nervous as she served for the match at 5-3 but could celebrate when Williams netted a backhand on her first match point.
