Kerber defeats Williams to win Wimbledon

Kerber entered the final leading all the players in the ladies' main draw with her percentage of returns in (88 per cent) and managed to clinch 61% of second serve return points, a far superior rate to Williams' 51%.

She prevented Williams from claiming an eighth title at Wimbledon and 24th from all Grand Slam tournaments, which would have equalled Margaret Court's record. Kerber rebounded from that 2016 Wimbledon loss to win the US Open two months later.

Williams returned to tennis in March and charged to the final of the Wimbledon, which was her fourth tournament of the year.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived in their preppy best on Saturday to watch the Wimbledon final between Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber. Markle and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton participated in a standing ovation as the players walked onto the court. "Kerber has been in good form in this tournament and needs to just stay calm and train her mind to face the pressure of a final against Serena", Becker wrote.

The left-hander scurried along the baseline, this way and that, using a combination of quickness and anticipation to track down what often appeared to be winners for Williams but were not enough to end a point. "I remember when I was watching her, that everybody was playing in white on the grass court".

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

Many couldn't help reiterating that the tennis star almost died of complications from her cesarean section.

Even though Meghan is royalty now, the pair's friendship is "still exactly the same", said Williams.

It's Kerber's first Wimbledon title and third Grand Slam title in her tennis career. "I learned a lot from a year ago, with all the expectations, all the things I go through".

Also supporting Williams on Centre Court are golfer Tiger Woods, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, and Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour. She struggled with her movement, and her serve, as evidence by the fact she lost 4 of 9 service games and just 34% of return points, while also firing 24 errors.

That's not going to work against an opponent of Kerber's quality. "I'm just me and that's all I can be", Serena said in response to a question about her being a Super-Mom. "It's obviously disappointing, but I can't be disappointed, you know, I have so much to look forward to".

Serving at 2-3 15-30 Williams popped up a half volley and Kerber rammed a victor past her and the 11th-seeded German repeated the trick with another sweet forehand to lead 4-2. I was trying to not thinking too much that I was playing against Serena.
