Serena Williams won Wimbledon Crown 2015

* Serena Williams made Wimbledon history as the world number one became the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam title with a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the final played on 11 July 2015.

* At 33 years and 289 days, Serena surpasses Martina Navratilova as the oldest player to win Wimbledon, and any of the other three Grand Slams, in the Open era.

* Serena's sixth Wimbledon crown brought with it a slew of other remarkable landmarks that underline her credentials as one of the greatest female athletes of all time.

* The American's 21st Grand Slam crown and 68th tour-level title earned her a cheque for £1.8 million ($2.7 million, 2.5 million euros)

* She now holds all four Grand Slam titles at the same time a rare record she earlier held during 2002-03.

* Serena is the first woman to land the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back since she last won that difficult double in 2002.

* It now leaves Serena needing only to defend the US Open to become the first woman since Steffi Graf in 1988 to claim a calendar Grand Slam.

* She is just one major title behind Graf on the Open era leaderboard and within three of all-time record holder Margaret Court's tally of 24.

* She is the first player since Graf in 1988 to win Wimbledon and the Australian and French Opens in the same year.

* Regardless of her defeat, Muguruza, 21, has emerged as one of the brightest young stars on the Wimbledon 2015 after a bravura display in her first Grand Slam final appearance.
