Angelique Kerber is the first German to win Wimbledon since Steffi Graf in 1996. After a 2-hour delayed start time, she beat the mother of all Champions, Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3. She caught Serena on a bad day, off her serve and overhitting shots, but she held serve, mixed things up when she needed to and stuck to her game. Well done and Congrats to Angelique Kerber!

Goal Scorers for France in yesterday’s World Cup Final

France has done it! France won the World Cup with a 4 – 2 victory over Croatia yesterday. It was an exciting game from start to finish with an early own goal by Mandzukic of Croatia, giving France the lead, then an equalizer by Perisic of Croatia. Afterwards, it was all about France. Griezmann scored a penalty given from a hand ball, then Pogba and Mbappé scored brilliant goals. Mandzukic with the self redemption for the own goal, beat France’s goalkeeper, Lloris all on his own and spoiled the party a bit with an awkward goal for Croatia.

Croatia ran out of time and France became victorious after 20 years! It’s a wrap folks!
