In another stunning display of Girl Power and athleticism, Serena  Williams defeated promising Spaniard Garbine Muguruza 6-4 6-4 in southwest London to complete the “#SerenaSlam” – winning four straight majors – for the second time. This is her sixth win at Wimbledon.

In recognition of her opponent’s remarkable effort, Serena told Garbine, “Don’t be sad. You’ll be holding this trophy very soon, believe me. You’re a great champ.”

Bad vibes on Twitter, Enter JK Rowling

It’s too bad everyone can’t be as gracious as Serena. Even with the tremendous wins in international sports by American women, some folk think it’s okay to pop off with hateful quips when it comes to female athletes and our beautiful bodies.

​Sometimes a world-class author just needs to shut it down.

After Serena won, Harry Potter author JK Rowling sent out this congratulatory tweet:

Unfortunatley,not everyone on Twitter (or online) was as pleased. One user, whose account is now “protected,” unceremoniously replied to Rowling’s tweet by saying “she is is built like a man.”

Game. Set. Match.
