2012 Wimbledon: Serena Williams Wins Women's Final For Fifth Time

Serena Williams survived a scare from Agnieszka Radwanska on Saturday in the 2012 Wimbledon Women's Final, eventually emerging with a 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 victory to earn her fifth Wimbledon crown and 14th Grand Slam championship overall.

Williams easily won the first set 6-1, dominating Radwanska so thoroughly the match looked to surely be over. However, 36 unforced errors from Williams allowed Radwanska to hang in the match, and earn the second set, before the sheer power of Williams again took over in the third set on her way to tying sister Venus with five Wimbledon titles.

At 30 years of age, Williams becomes the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Martina Navratilova also won at 30 in 1990.
