Germany's Kerber beats Serena to win Wimbledon women's title

Serena Williams

Serena Williams was so gracious with Angelique Kerber in the moments after Saturday's women's final but you could already see her brain switching to the US Open or whatever her next goal is.

She is also the first mother to reach a Wimbledon's final in 38 years.

Djokovic will face Kevin Anderson in the final tonight.

The German won her third Grand Slam title with a straight sets victory. The journalist went on to mention how moms around the world look to her as a "superhuman supermom", but Williams remained humble. While away she underwent multiple life-saving surgeries after a blood clot formed on her lungs shortly after she gave birth. She beat Williams in the Australian Open final that year, then won that year's U.S. Open to briefly replace her at No. 1 in the rankings.

Her energy and consistency forced the 30-year-old American into long rallies, which in the end had just one outcome - the 11th seed German winning a lot of them.

And of course she had a message for mums: "I was playing for you today and I tried but Angelique played really well".

Following the match over the weekend, Williams told the crowd that while it was disappointing to lose, she knows she can't be disappointed.

Serena Williams made it to the Wimbledon final after giving birth to her daughter and experiencing life-threatening complications just 10 months ago ― and no one seems more proud than her husband, Alexis Ohanian. Although Williams was on a 20-match winning run at Wimbledon and had lost only one set en route to the final, she was completely out of sorts, spraying wild ground-strokes wide time and again. So said the seven-time Wimbledon champion Steffi Graf; and 22 years after Graf was the last German to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish here, Angelique Kerber reversed once and for all the slump that has engulfed her since her annus mirabilis of 2016. So I said, "If you're going to try, let's go 100 per cent", and she took it and one day in Rome she made the switch in her mind, she wanted the challenge.

"I didn't feel it was hard because when we started working she really had a very hard desire to go back to the top of women's tennis and she was also willing to work very hard for that", he said of restoring her confidence. I have enjoyed every second here in the last two weeks.

Meanwhile, the victory over Williams was a personal satisfaction for Fissette, who has now coached five different players who have beaten the great American. The American was mostly her own undoing, too: She was responsible for the final's initial six unforced errors. "I have so much to look forward to". I learned so many things about myself, about the things around, how to deal with this, how to make my day schedule. I'm literally getting started. But, yeah, I just have to add it to the list.
