Dominant Williams now holds all four Grand Slam trophies

Serena Williams holds all four majors for the second time in her career after beating Garbine Muguruza for her sixth Wimbledon crown and 21st grand slam title.

The 33-year-old completed her second 'Serena Slam' by swatting aside Muguruza 6-4 6-4, some 12 years on from the last time she hogged all of tennis' top prizes.

Now the oldest female major winner in the open era, Williams needs only retain her US Open title to claim the elusive calendar Grand Slam.

"I can't believe I'm standing here with another Serena Slam," Williams told the BBC. "I just never dreamed I would be out here still, let alone winning and having so much fun.

"It's been such a pleasure to have played in front of this crowd for so long."

Williams' first Wimbledon title in three years moves her past sister Venus' haul of five victories in SW19.

As if to illustrate her ever more obvious status as the greatest women's player of all time, Williams departed Centre Court balancing the historic Venus Rosewater Dish trophy on her head.

Victory at Flushing Meadows at the end of the summer would bring Williams level with Steffi Graf's 22 major titles, leaving only Margaret Court's 24 for her to equal.

Only Williams could serve so poorly, produce so many unforced errors – and still win in straight sets.
