Wimbledon 2012: Serena Williams Wins Fifth Wimbledon Title

It looked like Serena Williams was going to cruise to a fifth Wimbledon title. After winning the first set 6-1, Williams looked dominant -- and it looked like it would be a quick, two-set match.

Agnieszka Radwanska, however, wasn't going to make it easy for Williams.

Radwanska dug deep and won the second set, 7-5. Radwanska led 6-5 after the 11th game, and broke Williams' tough serve to capture the second set.

At the end of the day, though, it was too much Serena Williams.

Williams quickly went up 5-2 after breaking Radwanska's serve in the seventh game, giving Williams an opportunity to serve for the Wimbledon tile. An opportunity, as it turns out, that Williams would not waste, as she went on to win the third and decisive set, 6-2, capturing her fifth Wimbledon title.

The win is Williams' first Grand Slam win since she won Wimbledon in 2010.
