Serena Williams at party before winning Wimbledon

Serena Williams wears a sleek black dress as she departs a pre-Wimbledon party at The Roof Gardens in London, England. The date was June 17, 2010. The party didn't seem to distract her: Williams won the Wimbledon singles title two weeks later, just as she had won the singles title at the Australian Open earlier in 2010. Serena Williams was born in 1981, so she turned 29 the year this photo was taken.
