London, England – Serena Williams put on a historic performance today as she won her seventh Wimbledon title, defeating Angelique Kerber 7-5 6-3 with 13 aces. This victory gives her a 22nd grand slam title, tied for the most all-time.

Beyonce featured Williams in the video for “Sorry” off her critically-acclaimed LEMONADE album. The tennis player said that Queen Bey gave her advice to just let loose as she twerked in the visual.
Williams previously lost to Kerber at the Australian Open in January and described what went differently in the rematch.
“This tournament I came in with a different mindset,” she said. “In Melbourne I thought I played well but Angelique played great, and better. So I knew going into this one I needed to be calm and be confident and play the tennis I’ve been playing for well over a decade.”
Congratulations to Serena!
