Serena Williams crip walking after winning gold
LONDON – Serena Williams, the newly minted gold medalist, did a little dance after almost winning at love.
That’s what winning the Olympics and another Wimbledon in less than a month will do.
Williams served three aces in the opening game and rarely relented, beating an overmatched Maria Sharapova of Russia, 6-0, 6-1, in the women’s Olympic final Saturday, taking 62 minutes.
“I was so focused here,” Williams said afterward. “I remember I was serving and I was thinking, ‘Serena, this is your best chance to win a gold medal. You played Wimbledon on grass. You played great on grass. Pull it together.’ I was thinking, ‘I got to do this.’
