Instead, the pressure of her new status and trying to back up what she had achieved crushed Kerber, and last season she won only six matches at the four slams combined. Since then the pair have become confidants who enjoy a glass of wine and a game of backgammon together, as well as being occasional practice partners. "I can, you know, come out and be a contender to win Grand Slams". Hardly showing signs of rustiness, the American superstar has stormed her way into the second Sunday, giving herself a chance to equal Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 major titles. "Honestly, I feel like if I can do it, they can do it", she said. With her excellent footwork, the German comfortably dictated from the middle of the back of the court and moved Williams about from left to right.

Earlier this week, Serena Williams told reporters that she has "always had a wonderful friendship" with Meghan. But she admitted there was some nervy moments, particularly at the end.

Kerber is much more than a defender. I have so much to look forward to. And, ultimately, she collapsed on the grass court in jubilation after converting match point, caking dirt on her white dress. The tennis player also dedicated her effort to all of the mothers out there. Yet she never settled.
'Today she played in the final at Wimbledon. The second set was not much better as she made a series of weird misses, including a drive volley in the final game. The ball missed, sailed long and Kerber calmly went about her game.
Strong, fit and determined, Kerber wasn't rattled by Williams' powerful groundstrokes.
She was bumped up to 25th seed courtesy of her seven titles at the All England Club - the most recent in 2016 - and more than justified that decision. Unforced error after unforced error led to her losing consecutive sets, 6-3, to fall short of the title.
Understandably, Williams was disappointed.
After giving birth to her daughter, Olympia, on September 1, Williams dealt with health complications that included blood clots and led to what she said were multiple operations.
The problems were not only physical.
"Serena you're a great person and a champion". "There's no escaping the fear", she said.
"I knew that I had to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena".
Perhaps after this defeat those worries will linger.
Williams returned to tennis in March and charged to the final of the Wimbledon, which was her fourth tournament of the year.
