Serena Williams ‘Slams’ Wimbledon 2015, J.K. Rowling Swings at Her Twitter Hater
Serena Williams looks good in gold.
Drake and Anna Wintour cheered from the sidelines as the tennis superstar stole her sixth Wimbledon title against Garbine Muguruza on Saturday, July 11. Williams achieved a second ‘Serena Slam’, the sports term created in her namesake that refers to winning four majors in a row.
The champion shared her disbelief to followers on Instagram in a photo collage of four fabulous wins:
“No words can describe the feeling I have right now. #SerenaSlam Wow this happened?? It happened in my dreams and its happening again now! … We did it… Now you know what I have on my mind now… Let’s GOOOOO”
Williams has the opportunity to execute a ‘Grand Slam’ sweeping of all four majors within a calendar year if she can prevail on top at the U.S. Open. This major feat has only been accomplished by three other female tennis players.
First Lady Michelle Obama sent her congrats to Williams from the White House via Twitter,
And the parody Twitter account Relatable Quotes reminded the internet that 7/11 was the most perfect day for her win.
Meanwhile, J.K. Rowling shut down a body-shaming Twitter troll that took a swing at Williams’ athletic physique.
