Hard to see Serena losing to Kerber: Boris Becker

Duchesses make first joint appearance as Meghan cheers friend Serena at Wimbledon

The 30-year-old's quarter-final spot at Roland Garros last month was her best performance in Paris in six years. "I'm obviously disappointed but I can't be - because I'm literally just getting started".

She was ranked No. 183 after returning to the pro tour in March.

"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said according to ESPN.

The world number 10, known for her returning prowess, will be hoping to engage Serena in long rallies in a bid to tire the veteran.

And when she swung her racket, the measure was nearly always true.

"I'm just me, that's all I can be", Williams said about playing as a mother.

"I was trying to play my best to play for you guys". "It was such a long way to see light at the end of the road", she said. Kerber clinched the coveted trophy, denying Williams a chance to grab her 24th Grand Slam title.

After taking the opening set 6-3 with the decisive break of serve, she managed to hold the ascendancy from the outset, not allowing the American a way back into the contest.

That Kerber's gritty resilience would pose Williams some questions was anticipated; what was wholly unexpected was she would outplay her opponent, who would have equalled Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slams had she won, so overwhelmingly.




Novak Djokovic is the overwhelming favourite to secure a fourth Wimbledon title on Sunday but he admits he feared his best days were behind him when his career nose-dived over the previous year.

The 30-year-old produced a superb display to beat Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 and become the first German since Steffi Graf in 1996 to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish on Centre Court.

They've played each other a total of eight times in the past, and Williams leads 6-2.

Kerber, cleverly moving Serena into awkward positions, took full advantage, winning four games in a row to wrap up the set.

However, to numerous viewers, "all that she can be" is more than enough.

She's still a victor to us. It's also her first so I know she'll enjoy it. I'm really, really sure.

The usual 2 p.m. start time was pushed back as the men's semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was played to a finish having been carried over from Friday.

With her excellent footwork, the German comfortably dictated from the middle of the back of the court and moved Williams about from left to right.

This year F1 ace Lewis Hamilton, golfer Tiger Woods and Dame Anna Wintour offered their support from behind her team.
