|Serena Gets 4th Wimbledon Title
|WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Serena Williams has won her fourth Wimbledon title and 13th Grand Slam championship by sweeping Vera Zvonareva in straight sets in the women's final.
The top-ranked and defending champion American beat the 12th-seeded Russian 6-3, 6-2 in 67 minutes Saturday to extend the Williams family dominance at the All England Club.
Williams served nine aces, broke three times and never faced a break point. She finished the tournament without dropping a set.
Williams added to the Wimbledon titles she won in 2002, 2003 and 2009. This was the first time she defeated someone other than her sister Venus in the final.
The Williams sisters have now won nine of the last 11 Wimbledon titles.
