Williams took down Angelique Kerber Saturday on the grass to take her 22nd Grand Slam singles title ... tying Steffi Graf for most all time.   Serena Williams has won so many grand slam titles in what continues to be a glorious career she has forgotten more than she can remember. But her seventh Wimbledon title, achieved Saturday thanks to a hard fought 7-5, 6-3 victory against Germany's Angelique Kerber, promises to linger longer than most. 

Both the speed and power of Serena Williams’ serve played a major part in her victory over Angelique Kerber

It was the American’s 22nd grand slam championship, putting her level with the open-era record held by the most famous German player of all, Steffi Graf. It is her ninth grand slam win since she turned 30 and, even with her 35th birthday just around the corner, Williams remains a remarkable force of nature that shows no sign of stopping.

Jay Z and Beyonce had one of the best seats in the house for Serena Williams' record-tying W at Wimbledon.
Ellen DeGeneresPortia DiRossi, Vera Wang and Natatlie Portman were there too.  Serena and Beyonce are known to be tight -- with Williams recently appearing in the singer's "Lemonade" video -- but judging by the pic, Jay Z might be the bigger fan.
