Hard to see Serena losing to Kerber: Boris Becker

Seven-time champion Serena Williams takes on Angelique Kerber in the women's singles final of Wimbledon 2018 at the All England Tennis Club in London on Saturday, July 14.

Regrettably, Serena couldn't quite bring home the title - she was defeated in the final by Angelique Kerber on 6-3, 6-3 sets - but Williams' comeback is well on its way and she still has that AH-Mazing family when she returns home!

The pair, who are playing each other for the 53rd time, will have to finish their match on centre court, with the roof closed to replicate the starting conditions, before Williams can face her German rival. The two-time champion gave up a 3-0 lead before breaking Djokovic again to take the fourth set 6-3. "It's always an honour to share a court with her".

Considering that the American suffered a hard childbirth and needed several surgeries to remove blood clots after an emergency C-section, it was a huge achievement to contest her 10th Wimbledon final.

Williams was in full agreement with the 30-year-old German and played down suggestions that it was disrespectful to the women's game. Kerber is now behind only Serena and Venus Williams, and Maria Sharapova for career Grand Slam titles among active WTA players. 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. "I was really happy to get this far" Serena Williams said speaking to the BBC. "I'm literally just getting started so I'll look forward to it".

Kavanaugh's views on presidential power and abortion are expected to draw particular attention in his confirmation hearing . Schumer acknowledged Tuesday that Democrats will need to persuade at least two Republicans to oppose Kavanaugh.

Williams was asked what she'll tell her daughter, Olympia, about this tournament and this day. "Serena is looking better with every round and in many ways, a tough quarterfinal helped toughen her game before the semifinal". "And to hold this trophy now, it is something that I can't describe".

We can't wait to see what they wear!

Kerber, the 11th seed, proved to be more precise with her shots, helping her to make a crucial break in the middle of the second set.

"Angelique played really well", Williams said. Knowing that no matter what happens, I have fantastic support and unconditional love.

With the Duchesses of Sussex and Cambridge in the Royal Box and Tiger Woods, Lewis Hamilton and Anna Wintour among those supporting Williams from her box, the stage seemed set for sport's most famous mother to write another remarkable chapter.

"I feel like I have a ways to go", Williams said.
