Serena Williams In Tears After First Wimbledon Loss In 10 Years

16 July 2018

Williams says she didn't have an answer to Kerber.

As Williams said after her semi-final victory against Julia Goerges, there was nothing normal about her being in a 30th grand slam singles final 10 months after giving birth to daughter Olympia and suffering life-threatening complications.

He wrote, "Our family knows she'll win many more trophies, too". I'm literally getting started. "Is hard to come back after injuries for a long time and have these kind of results, so I am proud of myself". She is one of the best players in the world.

Attacking right-hander Graf relied on her big forehand and serve while left-hander Kerber is more of a counter-puncher, as she displayed to great effect on Saturday when dealing with the inevitable Williams barrage.

Serena Williams fought back the tears after a "disappointing" defeat to Angelique Kerber in the final of Wimbledon, although she admitted she was proud of an "amazing tournament".

Kerber shared words of encouragement for Williams, who fell just short of Margaret Court's all-time major record of 24, after the match.

And Williams' husband, Alexis Ohanian, shared a story putting into perspective just how much Williams had come back from. It was such an wonderful tournament for me. Especially on the Centre Court.

"And to me, after becoming a mum, I feel like there's no pressure to do that because having a child is a completely full-time job but those that do want to go back, you know, you can just do it".

Serena Williams will be holding a trophy again soon-she's got the greatest one waiting at home for her. "I can, you know, come out and be a contender to win Grand Slams".

Despite the actual birthing process being "pretty easy", Williams battled multiple health issues post-pregnancy that had her spending the first six weeks of motherhood bed-ridden as she recovered. Anderson played for more than 6 1/2 hours Friday before getting past John Isner in a 26-24 fifth set; it's the second-longest match in Grand Slam history. She wore special compression leggings as a precaution during Wimbledon, just the fourth tournament of her comeback.

The first three Grand Slams of the year in women's singles have been won by three different European women.

"Everything has changed the way I thought about raising a daughter", she told Elle in May.

Stirred by her husband and a flurry of celebrity supporters like Tiger Woods, Lewis Hamilton and Anna Wintour, the 23-time Grand Slam victor forced her way into the match with a sublime volley in the third game of the second set, but again faltered in the very next point.
