Angelique Kerber beats Serena Williams to win first Wimbledon title

Kerber defeats Williams to claim Wimbledon crown

Kerber defeats Williams to claim Wimbledon crown

It also sets up a rematch of the 2016 Wimbledon final that ended with Williams winning in a close 7-5, 6-3 straight sets win. When Serena walks onto Centre Court to face Angelique Kerber in Saturday's final, it will mark the culmination of an incredible journey that serves as a testimony to the 36-year-old's determination and belief.

Kerber defeated Williams to win the Australian Open in 2016 and then, after losing here, lifted the trophy at the US Open.

'Today she played in the final at Wimbledon.

In a shocker that lasted barely over an hour, an inspired Angelique Kerber blew away Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3, ending the American's imperious run in this tournament to become the Wimbledon singles champion. "I was really happy to get this far", the athlete began before getting visibly emotional.

Writing on her former blog, The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex said: "Taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff".

She said after her 6-3 6-3 win: 'I saw the whole match yesterday, the long match in the semis.

The German struck a forehand victor to bring up championship point and sealed the victory on the next point when Williams could only return a serve into the net. "It was definitely a different game [than I've seen this tournament], but at times she hit the ball really hard". 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. She knew exactly what to expect - and what to do - against Serena Williams.

Ivanka also drew negative attention about the "zero tolerance" policy when she visited a school in Syracuse, New York, on Monday. Mueller is reportedly examining Kushner's meetings with Russian officials in 2016.

Perhaps more impressive was this: She broke Williams in 4 of 9 service games.

Serena Williams left it all on the court.

"After 2017, nobody was expecting me to come back so strong, to win my third Grand Slam, win Wimbledon, which was always my dream", Kerber said after becoming one of only five women ever to beat Williams in a Grand Slam final.

Williams played unseeded at the French Open in Paris in May, eventually pulling out of the Grand Slam tournament in the fourth round due to an injury.

That's not going to work against an opponent of Kerber's quality. The sheer presence of Serena has been so overpowering that I can not but wonder whether the exodus of top seeds was a sense of ominous foreboding that accompanies a champion of her stature.

"It's obviously disappointing but I can't be disappointed; I have so much to look forward to".
