Serena Williams Is In Trouble At The Women’s Final Of Wimbledon

U.S. player Serena Williams returns against Germany´s Angelique Kerber during their women´s singles final match on the twelfth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon.

Angelique Kerber claimed her first Wimbledon title with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over seven-time champion Serena Williams.

Serena can also equal Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles if she beats Kerber.

Kerber celebrated match point by covering her face and collapsing flat on her back, getting grass stains on her white outfit.

"I knew I had to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena", Kerber said. "I'm just me and that's all I can be", Serena said in response to a question about her being a Super-Mom.

"In 2017 there were a few ups and downs", said Kerber who finished a year ago out of the top 10 for the first time since 2012.

"It's obviously disappointing but I can't be disappointed; I have so much to look forward to".

Playing her first slam final since the 2017 Australian Open, which she won while two months pregnant, in only her fourth tournament back, it was perhaps no surprise that Williams started nervously. "I want to get as many as I can, starting with - I still have a match to win, so I'm not even there yet". Honestly, I feel like if I can do it, they can do it.

But now she is a royal, Meghan may have to be more discreet in her support although yesterday Serena made no secret of their friendship.

An almost-faultless Kerber won 6-3 6-3 and completed the third different Grand Slam title in four major finals and is now projected to go as high as No.4. But in the eyes of many watching on Saturday, Williams was still a victor.

When Serena Williams takes to centrecourt at Wimbledon in the Women's Singles finals, she'll be sharing the spotlight with two other women. To all the mums out there, I was playing for you today, and I tried but Angelique played really well, she played out of her mind.

Kerber was so consistent.

Graf's 22 Grand Slam titles spanned 12 years. She declined to do the victory lap that runner ups generally participate in, left the second-place dish on the chair, and gave an emotional interview afterwards.

Williams has been praised across social media for her performance today, with entrepreneur Everette Taylor writing: 'Serena Williams came back from pregnancy to make it to the finals of Wimbledon at nearly 37 years old. It would be her last tournament for more than a year, in part because of a series of medical procedures that followed a hard childbirth.
