Serena's Best Shot Serves Her Well
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Serena Williams says she's awarding the Wimbledon trophy to her serve.

The shot served Williams well at Wimbledon. She hit a record 89 aces and won the title for the fourth time, beating Vera Zvonareva in Saturday's final.

No. 1 in the rankings and No. 6 on the list for career Grand Slam titles, Williams is the most overpowering player on the women's tour, especially when she hits the first shot of a point. And Williams said she has never served so well as in the past two weeks.

Williams lost serve only three times in seven matches. When her first serve was good, she won the point 88 percent of the time, including 31 of 33 points against Zvonareva.
