What's the best way to celebrate winning a seventh Wimbledon singles title? Winning a sixth doubles title, of course.

Hours after Serena Williams tied Steffi Graf's open era Grand Slam record at 22, the American teamed up with her sister Venus to romp to their 14th major as a duo.

The sisters beat Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova in straight sets, but the win was yet another example of Serena Williams' supreme athleticism.

While most Wimbledon champions would be a few drinks into their victory celebrations by the evening, Williams put the revelling on hold as she targeted another victory.

While some might say that she didn't expend too much energy in beating Angelique Kerber in straight sets earlier in the day, there were many energy-sapping points that definitely taxed Williams.

But once again, she showed herself to be simply unstoppable when it comes to collecting Grand Slams - be it at singles or doubles.

She may have had to put the champagne on ice for a little while, but now Serena and Venus Williams can heartily toast a magnificent day at the All-England club.
