Defeated Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska admitted Serena Williams's awesome serving power had demolished any hope she had of causing a Centre Court shock on Saturday.
Williams sent down 17 aces in the final as she romped to a 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 win and a fifth Wimbledon title.
The ace count took her to 102 for the tournament, more than any man or woman in the competition, and featured four in a row in the fourth game of the third set, a 'golden game'.
"For sure, she was really serving well today. This is the thing I can't do anything about," said Radwanska, who was making her Grand Slam final debut and will now move to number two in the world rankings.
"In the second set, I think it was a little bit more windy, she didn't put in that many first serves, and I had my chances to break her back.
"But it's her weapon, the serve. That's why she won the tournament five times."
