Before her amazing entrance at the Wimbledon Champions ball, Serena had revealed she had acquired a dress for the occasion beforehand saying 'I brought a nice dress, just in case.' but the dress no one knew the dress would transform Serena into a medieval princess who has come fresh from a victory.
According to USA Today, Serena arrived at the event held at the Guidlhall in London, in a show stopping cream colored gown with jewels embellished on the front of the dress. The glitzy gown worn by the tennis legend hugged her tightly and showed off her feminine and figure side with perfection.
Although it is still not clear who the dress was designed by, the choice does show Serena’s impeccable taste in fashion. After giving an incredible performance at the Wimbledon women’s championship a few days ago, Serena let her hair loose and straightened and looked like a regal princess. However the most dazzling part of Serena’s ensemble was not her dress but her big winner smile as she arrived on the red carpet.
After the red carpet the Daily Mail reported Serena had an even more eventful evening when she danced with the Wimbledon Men’s champion Novak Djokovic. Djokovic had previously expressed his desire to dance with Serena after her win at a press conference, if they allowed him at the Champions ball saying ‘Serena, I look forward to meeting her tonight. Maybe I have a dance with her, if they allow me.’
Djokovic further praised Serena saying "She has achieved something incredible. So much respect for her. She's an unbelievable competitor. I hope for her that she makes the Golden Slam- she deserves that…’ It seems like Djokovic got his wish and the tennis winners danced on stage to the delight of everyone present.
Djokovic’s wife Jelena also tweeted a warning to Serena saying her husband has asked for a dance with Serena. The tweet said: Hey @serenawilliams Novak just asked me for a permission to ask you for a champions dance tonight. Get ready!
After the dance at the Champions ball on stage both Serena and Djokovic posed for pictures with their respective trophies. Novak Djokovic was crowned Wimbledon Men's champion after beating Roger Federer, which is Djokovic’s third Wimbledon win.
Serena Williams on the other hand defeated the 21 years old Garbine Muguruza from Spain, to win her sixth Wimbledon Champion title as reported by BBC. The match lasted for one whole hour and 23 minutes as Serena landed a 6-4 6-4 win on the Centre Court to become the oldest female athlete ever to have won the grand slam. The win made it Serena’s 21st grand slam win and the third in the year 2015. Serena now holds all four major titles of 2015 and has effectively completed her ‘Serena Slam’.
Serena who started her career 12 years ago and delivered the world with the term ‘Serena Slam’ will now move forward to the US open championship next month. It will be the first calendar year grand slam of Serena’s career as she makes history in a sport previously dominated by only white folk.

According to the Daily Mail the celebrated Harry Potter author also took to twitter to congratulate Serena on her Wimbledon but one user tried to make the occasion sour. However Rowling being the amazing author she is effectively put down the bully.
It all started when J.K. Rowling posted a congratulatory message on Twitter saying: '#SerenaSlam! I love her. What an athlete, what a role model, what a woman!’ A twitter user who goes by the user name of ‘Rob @diegtristan8’ tried to body shame Serena Williams for not having a more feminine figure.
The hater tweeted back a reply to the famous author’s tweet by declaring the Tennis ace Serena is built like a man, saying: ‘@jk_rowling @hansmollman ironic then that main reason for her success is that she is built like a man’.
However Rowling was not going to stay silent and effectively put down the twitter troll in his place by her epic reply. Rowling retweeted an old picture of Serena in a sexy red dress, which showed off her amazing figure with all her womanly curves to perfection, and calling the twitter bully and ‘Idiot’ in her caption. Rowling wrote: @diegtristan8 "she is built like a man". Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You're an idiot.
The epic response by Rowling has been retweeted more than hundreds of thousands of times since Saturday when the incident took place. Serena also showed how proud she is of her win and despite whatever anyone says she will enjoy her moment of glory as a woman from a race who has been oppressed the most in the history.
Furthermore it seems like Serena will have the last laugh as she takes home a trophy and a hunk. According to the Times Live, Serena Williams and Drake the rapper are dating and were seen kissing in the clubhouse after Serena’s victory against Victoria Azarenka in the Wimbledon quarter final. The 33 year old Serena is also said to have embraced the 28 year old singer after her press conference on Friday and some sources claim they were joking around after the conference.
