(Newser) – Serena Williams today did what she usually does when she makes it to a Grand Slam final—win. She beat 20th seed Garbine Muguruza of Spain at Wimbledon in straight sets, 6-4 and 6-4, reports ESPN. The victory sets up an interesting scenario, notes Bleacher Report. If Williams wins at the US Open in September, that will give her all four Grand Slams this year—the first "Calendar Slam" since Steffi Graf managed the feat in 1988. On the men's side, Roger Federer plays Novak Djokovic tomorrow. Here's a preview.
