Kerber channels pain into glory at Wimbledon

Serena Williams Upset in Wimbledon Final

Kerber beats Williams to claim maiden Wimbledon title

In the first Wimbledon final for 41 years to feature two women 30 or older, Serena was cheered on by her friend the Duchess of Sussex, golf legend Tiger Woods and Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton. Separately, Novak Djokovic delivered a semi-final win over Rafael Nadal in a two-day thriller that lasted five hours and 15 minutes.

She could not find her best space mentally and tennis-wise, after a stellar 2016 where she had won Australian Open and US Open.

We always knew Serena Williams' return from maternity leave would be big, but the way she's stormed the court to become an advocate for new mothers is something else. But sandwiched between those two victories, was a defeat at the All England Club.

But, despite a painful loss to German Angelique Kerber in Saturday's Wimbledon final, Williams's husband Alexis Ohanian said she was "just getting started".

Perhaps most crucially for Saturday's final, Fissette gave her the belief that she could beat Serena Williams.

Williams' was obviously upset as she spoke to the result. But, foreshadowing the pain to come, Serena's 30th Grand Slam final got off to a rocky start as she dropped her serve with four unforced errors in the opening game. Williams stepped up the ferocity, nearly taking Kerber's head off with a return at one stage, but was too error prone for the German, who made her play that extra ball.

Because Williams' comeback has been an achievement in itself, two-time champion Petra Kvitova congratulated both players.
