Serena Williams is queen of the tennis world once again. On Saturday morning, she won her sixth Wimbledon title. The 33-year old beat 21-year old Garbine Muguruza of Spain on her way to completing her second “Serena Slam” – which she last did in 2003. This hat trick-like feat includes winning titles at Wimbledon, the Australia Open, the French Open, and the U.S. open. According to Quartz, she is the oldest woman ever to be ranked #1 – and she shows no signs of stopping! Congrats, Serena!

In related news, some guy was trolling tweets this morning regarding the Wimbledon match. One of these supportive tweeters included J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series (which hopefully you knew already).  The troll evidently tweeted something along the lines of that Serena was only successful because she is built like a man, to which Rowling responded swiftly:

@jk_rowling: “.@diegtristan8 ‘she is built like a man’. Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You’re an idiot.”

…along with this photo of Serena looking toned and fab in a bright red dress. Rowling definitely closed the book on that guy, and all haters.
