Serena Williams was crowned Wimbledon champion for the fifth time on Saturday as she defeated Polish third seed Agnieszka Radwanska by 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 in a dramatic final.

Serena is the first woman over 30 to win Wimbledon since Martina Navratilova in.

After being completely out-classed for the first set and a half of her maiden Grand Slam final, Radwanska had Serena on the ropes before the sixth seed finally recovered her composure to reclaim the Venus Rosewater Dish in just over two hours on Centre Court.

Williams has now equalled her sister Venus's tally of five titles at the All England Club, but Serena’s 14th Grand Slam crown is her first at the majors since her last Wimbledon triumph in 2010.
