The #SerenaSlam

Serena Williams has always been known as one of the greatest female tennis players in history. But on Saturday, she proved that she is in fact the best female tennis player of all time.

According to CNNWilliams defeated Spain’s Garbiñe Muguruza 6-4 6-4 at the All England Club, securing what has become known as the “Serena Slam” — that is, winning four straight major tournaments, something she has now done twice.

And not only did the 33-year-old tennis champion achieve her second ‘Serena Slam,” CNN reports that Williams also “surpassed Martina Navratilova by nearly four weeks as the oldest women’s grand slam winner in the Open Era.” Williams credits lively, dance-filled workouts as one of the ways she keeps herself in championship shape.

Williams will get a chance later this summer to secure her grand slam status when she hits the courts of the U.S. Open in Flushing, New York from August 31 to September 13. If the three-time defending champion prevails at the U.S. Open this year, CNN reports that “she would become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to complete the calendar-year grand slam.”

Congratulations, Serena! You are truly living #theinspiredlife!
