Champion Serena Williams ‘Felt Cool and Calm and Collected’ During Wimbledon Final

“It felt so good. It really did,” Williams said.

— -- Serena Williams made history this weekend when she won a seventh Wimbledon singles title and her 22nd Grand Slam title.

"I just felt cool and calm and collected," Williams said.

"The whole time?" Spencer asked.

"Yeah, pretty much," Williams replied.

She described the moment when the match ended and she dropped onto the grass.

From her position lying on the grass she raised her arms and pointed one finger of each arm –- a gesture signifying "22" for having tied Graf's Grand Slam record.

"It was awesome," Williams said of the moment. "I mean, I still really can't believe it -- that I have 22 titles ... I still get a little lost for words when I think about it."
