2012 Wimbledon Championships: Serena Williams Wins Fifth Crown In Three Sets Over Agnieszka Radwanska

Serena Williams looked like she was going to capture her fifth Wimbledon championship with relative ease on Saturday, winning the first set over Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, but Radwanska fought back to win the second set before succumbing to Williams' power in the third. The 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 victory at the 2012 Wimbledon Women's Final is the 14th Grand Slam title overall for Williams.

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. Williams had 17 aces in the match to just two for Radwanska.

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.
