Serena Williams beat Angelique Kerber in straight sets in the Wimbledon final Saturday to win her seventh Wimbledon championship and 22nd career Grand Slam title.

Williams won the first set 7-5 and the second set 6-3.

The 22 championships equal Steffi Graf's Open era record. It is the first major win for the No. 1-ranked Williams since last year's Wimbledon title. She then lost in the U.S. Open semifinals, in the Australian Open final, and in the French Open final.
