The first of Borg’s five consecutive Wimbledon championships: Borg defeats Nastase 6-4 6-2 9-7

Not really regarded as a classic, but nonetheless interesting, this final between the mercurial Romanian and the cool Swede marks the debut of Borg’s era at Wimbledon.

Nastase, having reached the final in 1972 and leading in their head to head was the clear favorite, but the pressure was on his shoulders: this final was seen as his last chance to win Wimbledon.

There was simply no match today. Serena Williams beats Vera Zvonareva in straight sets 6-3, 6-2.

She captured her 4th Wimbldon title, her 13th Grand Slam overall, one more than tennis legend Billie Jean King.

Congrats to Serena who is the only consistent female player in the majors.

Women’s semifinals looked like first rounds, the final like a fourth round. Serena Williams is obviously the HUGE favorite to retain her title. Williams has a 5-1 head-to-head record against Zvonareva and is definitely favorite to win the final. However, Zvonareva already has a victory over Williams at Wimbledon 2010 – together with compatriot Elena Vesnina she beat defending champions Serena and sister Venus in the women’s doubles quarterfinals.
