Serena Williams lands ‘Golden Slam’ in London Olympics 2012
Serena Williams is the first player to win all four Grand Slams and an Olympic title in singles and doubles. Serena earned the title after winning her Olympic tennis singles gold on Saturday.
Serena William demolished No. 3 seed Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 in just over an hour to complete her “Golden Slam”. She utterly could not contain her joy and excitement as she waited to step on to the podium to collect her medal.
“I didn’t think I would be this happy. I’m so pumped,” the 30-year-old said, laughing off a mishap which saw the US flag whipped off the rail by a gust of wind half way through the national anthem. “I never thought I would have a gold medal in singles.”
Williams, who already had two doubles gold medals with sister Venus, has surpassed the rare singles Golden Slam, a feat only achieved by Steffi Graf, Andre Agassi and Rafael Nadal.
“It’s a great feeling. I never thought that it would happen to me. Steffi Graf was such an inspiration,” she said. “I always thought the one person I wouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as was Steffi Graf.”
