It’s official. Serena Williams is a superhero!

The 33-year-old tennis legend beat Spain’s Garbine Muguruza to take home her sixth Wimbledon title, bringing her grand slam total to 21.

Williams struggled with her serve during the second set, but battled back to take home the crown and add her name–yet again–to Wimbledon’s wall of champions.

With this win Williams completes the “Serena Slam,” meaning she holds of all four grand slam titles at once. Williams now moves on to the U.S. Open in September to see if she can pull off a calendar year grand slam, something that hasn’t been done since 1988.

“I can’t believe I am standing here with another ‘Serena Slam.’ It is so cool,” she told the BBC after her win. “It has been a pleasure and an honor to give so many years in this unbelievable place.”

Ever the gracious champion, Williams also gave her young opponent a few words of encouragement.

“Don’t be sad. You’ll be holding this trophy very soon,”Williams told Muguruza, who’s just 21. “You’re a great player.”

At 33, many didn’t expect Williams to still be at the top of the tennis world at this age, but she’s enjoying every single moment.

“I am having so much fun out on the court. Everyday is a pleasure to be playing and winning Wimbledon,” she said.
