Serena Williams takes the court seeking history Saturday in the Wimbledon’s women’s final. Not only is the 33-year-old trying to win a 6th Wimbledon, but also a second “Serena Slam” and a 21st overall Grand Slam major.
Serena has won 27 straight matches in Grand Slam play, all since exiting the 2014 Wimbledon Champion in a cloud of uncertainty.
Muguruza arrives in the Wimbledon as a Cinderella, upsetting four straight Top 15 players en route to her first career Grand Slam final.
