Serena Williams Claims Olympic Gold

Serena Williams Claims Olympic Gold

0 YOOZ this

Serena Williams won her first Olympic singles gold medal by defeating Maria Sharapova in a dominating finals performance. Williams made Sharapova look like an amateur, winning the most lopsided women's final in Olympic history Saturday by a score of 6-0, 6-1.

The victory completed a remarkable run of domination by the No. 4-seeded Williams, who lost only 17 games in six matches en route to her first singles gold medal. She went 13-0 this summer at the All England Club, where she won her fifth Wimbledon title a month ago.

Serena Williams also won the doubles title with her big sister Venus, giving Williams a Golden Slam in both singles and doubles. The sisters beat Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4 under the roof on a rainy afternoon at the All England Club.

Serena Williams now has a gold in singles and 3 gold medals in doubles. Venus Williams also has a gold medal in singles and 3 gold medals in doubles, all with her sister.

Despite the victory, Maria Sharapova will take over the number 1 ranking in the world.
