Wimbledon drew to a close over the weekend with a stunning finish from the women’s single side.
Elena Rybakina was the 17th seed going into the tournament, and on Saturday she won her first Grand Slam title becoming the first player representing Kazakhstan to win a Grand Slam Singles title.
Rybakina went head to head against Ons Jabeur of Tunisia to become the lowest ranked player to take home the title since Venus Williams won at the All England Club.
The women’s doubles title went to Kateřina Siniaková and Barbora Krejčíková of Czechia.

Hockey World Cup
After a series of tough losses, the Green Army was able to pull off a win against South Africa.
Two penalty corner goals from Sarah Hawkshaw and Róisín Upton put the team up 2-0.
After being eliminated from the group stages, the team is working to finish at a higher ranking than they received going into the tournament (13).
They will be back in action on Tuesday against China to fight for the 9th place ranking.
All-Ireland Ladies Football Championship
It was a thrilling weekend for Ladies Football as the quarter-final rounds took place.
The four teams that we will see making appearances in the semi-final round of the championships will be Kerry, Mayo, Meath and Donegal.
Kerry was matched up against Armagh over the weekend where they won 4-12 to 2-14 despite Aimee Mackin’s 11 points for her team.
Mayo fought against Cork for their 2-13 to 0-17 win at Cusack Park.
The reigning champions Meath will continue their championship campaign following a narrow 1-12 to 1-11 match against Galway.
In arguably the most surprising match of the weekend, last year's finalists, Dublin, fell to Donegal 1-7 to 3-7 at Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada.
Semi-finals will be taking place next Sunday at Croke Park with Meath playing Donegal and Kerry taking on Mayo.
