Serena Williams, the most elite tennis player ever to play the game, won the Gold Medal on Saturday, defeating Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 at Wimbledon and capping the career Golden Slam!
Besides Steffi Graf in 1988, Serena is the only woman to ever win all four majors on the way to the GOLD!
"I don't think it's her," Serena said of Sharapova after the match, "I just think today I played well."
Serena Williams won 13 straight matches this year at the All England Club, seven at Wimbledon and six at the Olympics.
Go Serena!!... we are so motivated by your drive for excellence!
