The Compton, Calif., princess bested her sister Venus in her victory. The siblings—only 15 months apart—shared a long hug on court after the 1 hour, 22 minute match and shut down all notions of any sibling rivalry.

 “There’s no way I’d be at 23 (titles) without her, there’s no way I’d be at one without her. She’s my inspiration. Thank you Venus for inspiring me to be the best player I could be,” said Serena. She also thanked her other sisters and parents.

At 35, Serena is the oldest women’s champion at a major in the Open Era—she also held that record when she won the 2016 Wimbledon title at 34 years and 287 days old.

Congratulations to Serena Williams! The Greatest Athlete of all time! #23
