Serena Makes History and Wins 6th Women’s Doubles Title With Sister

GettyImages-545701578.0Serena Williams made history this weekend when she won her 22nd Grand Slam title.

The feat tied the record set by Steffi Graf for most major championships in the Open era. Williams now stands behind only Margaret Court’s all-time mark of 24 titles, according to ABC News.

“It was awesome,” Williams said after the match. “I mean, I still really can’t believe it — that I have 22 titles … I still get a little lost for words when I think about it.”

Williams and her sister Venus also won their 14th Grand Slam doubles titles together, beating the team of Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4. The sisters hadn’t won a title since 2012.

Congratulations to Venus and Serena!
