London:

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."
