Serena Williams Obliterates Maria Sharapova, Wins Gold Medal

by at . Comments

Serena Williams can add one more achievement to her Hall of Fame resume: Olympic champion.

The 14-time Grand Slam winner won a major tournament on the hallowed grounds of Wimbledon for the second time this summer, destroying top-ranked Maria Sharapova in the Gold Medal match by a score of 6-0, 6-1.

It was the most lopsided women's final in Olympic history.

Williams lost only 17 games across six matches and let out a scream and even did a little dance upon taking the decisive point.

"I don't think I've ever danced like that," she said afterward. "I don't even know where the dance came from."

Serena now moves on to the doubles semifinals alongside sister Venus. It's been quite a year for the legendary star.

"I was so focused here," she said. "I remember I was serving and I was thinking: 'Serena, this is your best chance to win a gold medal. You're at Wimbledon, you're on grass, you play great on grass, pull it together, just win this.' And that's what I thought about."

"Obliterates" is a good word for the devastation that Serena reeked on Sharapova. Serena has been majestic throughout the Olympics. A succession of the world's top players have been paraded before her as challengers, and in repsonse  she has brutally crushed, dismantled, humiliated, dominated, destroyed, broken, and battered them into submission. Finally Sharapova was put up as a credable opponent but the magnificent Williams shattered her in one game of dominant serving power and then she humiliated the Russian in an overwhelming display of physical superiority. Unable to match her powerful opponent, the tall, slightly built Russian crumbled to dust in the face of Serena's vastly superior power.
