LIVE UPDATES: Williams vs Kerber in #Wimbledon ladies' final

She also beat Williams in the Australian Open final in 2016, then won that year's U.S. Open. "Kerber is playing at the top of her game".

The German collapsed on the SW19 turf after taking the win as she became the first German to be crowned champions since Steffi Graf in 1996.

In came highly-regarded Wim Fissette, who had worked with former number ones Victoria Azarenka, Kim Clijsters and Simona Halep.

"Serena you're a great person and a champion". I'm sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon. 'Honestly, I just feel like it was a necessary evil.

This is not the first time Meghan, who is friends with Serena, attended the tennis championships.

And when she swung her racket, the measure was nearly always true. And she totally did.

But with the clock ticking, and having already celebrated her 28th birthday, Kerber stunned Williams in the 2016 Australian Open final to claim her maiden Grand Slam title.

She showed immediately why she's considered a superb returner.

The match is being played with the Centre Court roof closed - the same conditions that the first three sets were played under.

Djokovic downs Nadal in epic to reach Wimbledon final
In the 50th game, Isner took down the opening point before Anderson captured the next four - including two on aces. I'm overwhelmed", he said after the match. "It feels like it´s a draw but somebody has to win".

To be perfectly honest, I haven't thought about that this tournament. "I want to get as many as I can, starting with - I still have a match to win, so I'm not even there yet". "I'm literally just getting started, so I look forward to it".

"From the first point to the last point, she played unbelievable today", Williams said of Kerber. "I was really happy to get this far". I tried to enjoy every single moment now.

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.

Left-hander Kerber drew Williams into longer rallies that brought out errors.

Williams' play was tight right from the outset.

The 23 time Grand Slam champion needed her rocky serve to stay in the match, but she failed to create enough chances as Kerber in the opening set put 62% of returns in. She broke Serena's serve four times and only had her serve broken once so despite Serena being a favorite, she kept up her skills.

Williams has the head-to-head record over Kerber at 6-2.

Earlier this week, Serena Williams told reporters that she has "always had a wonderful friendship" with Meghan.

Williams has not lost a Wimbledon final for 10 years, last defeated by someone who knows her better than most - her sister Venus.
