Serena an inspiration for new Wimbledon champion Kerber

Serena Williams Upset in Wimbledon Final

Djokovic will face Kevin Anderson in the final tonight.

Serena Williams of the US reacts during the women's singles final against Germany's Angelique Kerber.

Serena Williams will have to wait until the US Open to try and equal Margaret Court's long-standing record of 24 Grand Slam singles titles after losing the Wimbledon final to Angelique Kerber.

Just 10-and-a-half months since giving birth to her first child, Williams did the unthinkable and stormed her way to the final of the grass-court Grand Slam.

An even start to the second followed, but Williams was unable to build sustained pressure as Kerber continued to display sublime defensive skills. "It's something I am very proud of against the best player in the world", he replied.

But even in defeat, Williams believes her run to the final was a win for all working mothers.

"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", Williams, playing only her fourth tournament since returning to the Tour, said. In contrast, the German made her second serve speak for itself, winning 57% and 60% of service points in the two sets.

Serving for the match, Kerber looked nervous as Williams got it back to 30-30 but she claimed victory when Williams netted, tumbling to the dusty baseline in relief before being warmly embraced by her opponent.

Alexis Ohanian's tribute for Serena Williams after her Wimbledon defeat will give you all the feels.




The 36-year-old American lost 6-3 6-3 to Kerber in the finals.

Angelique Kerber went through a tough 2017 season.

Kerber won the first set 6-3.

"I was trying to stay focused the whole two weeks, every single day, trying to improve my tennis, trying to stay in my moment, not thinking too much, not thinking what can happen".

"That's what makes me great: I always play everyone at their greatest, so I have to be greater". Mommy has to do this.' I cried a little bit not as much as I thought I would.

Now with coach Wim Fissette, who has worked with the likes of Victoria Azarenka, Simona Halep and Kim Clijsters, she captured the Sydney title in January and made the semi-finals at the Australian Open and last-eight at Roland Garros.

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are level at 7-7 in the fifth set of their Wimbledon semifinal.

"He's probably the greatest fighter ever to play this game".

"But that's it. Nothing else. When I won the match point ... there have been a lot of emotions, a lot of work that I put in these last few months, a lot of sweating in the practice sessions to play in these moments".
