Serena Williams Gets Emotional Over Losing Wimbledon Amid Comeback

Williams struck the first serve of the contest at 4.16pm, more than two hours later than normal, following the conclusion of the men's semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. "I was still pregnant at this time previous year".

In a noted essay on women's tennis, written in 1988, the year of Angelique Kerber's birth, the novelist Martin Amis reckoned Steffi Graf was "something unbelievable on the tennis court, a miracle of speed, balance and intense athleticism". Just being with her, spending time with her.

"Angelique played really well", Williams said. "She played out of her mind".

Kerber clinched the coveted trophy, denying Williams a chance to grab her 24th Grand Slam title.

However, to numerous viewers, "all that she can be" is more than enough.

For Kerber, there's no surprise it's Williams standing between the German and another Grand Slam.

MEGHAN Markle and Kate Middleton tonight cheered on Serena Williams at Wimbledon in their first public engagement without their husbands.

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.

"From the first point to the last point, she played unbelievable today", Williams said of Kerber. I'm sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon.

I think that was the right decision, to put the match before us because they have tomorrow the biggest final.

She kept nagging away at Serena and induced more miscues from the American in the sixth game of the second set. By the time the first set was over, the disparity was 14-3.

That's not going to work against an opponent of Kerber's quality. There are no holes.

Brown then returns to her vehicle to consult with fellow officers about whether to arrest Webb or just give her a ticket. Chief Grant said "after I became aware that this incident occurred, I immediately initiated an internal investigation".

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.

During the tournament, Kerber has been fairly more dominant in the shorter rallies, ending in no more than four shots but Serena got the better of the German on two tricky short balls, that Kerber couldn't get back.

Kerber said of her win: "It's just a dream come true".

That's not to say Kerber is only about defending.

The Duchesses both kept their hair to their signature looks too - with Kate sporting her chocolate locks in a fresh bouncy blow dry, while Meghan's dark hair was back in a low bun, with wavy tendrils hanging around her face. "She will want to win it really badly next year".

Kerber was broken only once.

If you've been following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's love story even a teeny tiny bit, you know there's a famous circle of friends and connections (including Kim Kardashian and Barack Obama) that surrounds the couple's every move.

Since attending the royal wedding in May, Williams has spent time with the former "Suits" star. "I'm obviously disappointed but I can't be - because I'm literally just getting started".

Now she just needs to win the French Open to complete the career Grand Slam.

Also supporting Williams on Centre Court were golfer Tiger Woods and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.

Williams was asked what she'll tell her daughter, Olympia, about this tournament and this day. "That was the hardest part - accepting that I didn't", Williams said.
