Serena was beaten by German star Angelique at the final on Saturday, which was attended by her close friend Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge.

Angelique Kerber became the first German woman to win Wimbledon for 22 years as the 11th seed shattered Serena Williams' bid for Grand Slam history with a shock 6-3, 6-3 victory in Saturday's women's final.

Husband, and Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, took to Instagram following the loss to highlight just what Williams has been through over the past year, undergoing serious surgery following the birth of daughter Alexis Olympia.

Williams gave birth only 10½ months ago, then was treated for blood clots.

Despite so much Grand Slam success, despite holding a 6-2 career edge against Kerber entering the day, Williams played tightly right from the outset. She's going to get fitter and this may make her even more determined because I know Serena.

So far this tournament Williams has progressed serenely and dropped just the one set against Camila Giorgi in the quarter-final.

Her win, revenge for a 2016 defeat in the final by Williams, snapped the American's 20-match winning run at Wimbledon. Williams was mostly her own undoing, too: She was responsible for the final's initial six unforced errors.

Hinting that fans could expect Serena to return to the court in the near future, Alexis insisted that she was "just getting started". Mommy has to do this.' I cried a little bit not as much as I thought I would ...

Hoskins has the flawless swing and thanks to East Norriton bat maker David Chandler, now he has the ideal bat for the derby, too. An extremely impressive first showing in the derby for Hoskins, who may want to return because of the unfinished business.

Williams had been chasing a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles success and was close to tears at the end, saying on court: "It was such an unbelievable tournament for me".

"Now she's supporting me in a different role".

The gorgeous brunette swept her hair back into her trademark bun, as she carried a navy handbag and white fedora hat.

"I think she'll get 24 and I have no doubt she'll get 25". "She played out of her mind". Speaking after the match, Serena said: "For all the mums out there, I was playing for you today, I tried".

Kerber took the decision to replace her long-time coach Torben Beltz with Wim Fissette.

Kerber's coach, Wim Fissette, also believes Williams will soon equal Court's record. "When I won the match point ... there have been a lot of emotions, a lot of work that I put in these last few months, a lot of sweating in the practice sessions to play in these moments".

She was later seen smiling as she cheered on pal Serena as she collected her runners up prize.
