Angelique Kerber after the match.

Kerber ended the set with two consecutive breaks to to take it 6-3, using the whole court to defend and counter-attack properly, hitting massively and with nearly no risk at all.

Serena lost to Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon final on Saturday, but said it was just the start of her comeback.

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.

"But this is just fantastic". It is obviously disappointing but I can not be disappointed. To win Wimbledon, it's something really special in my career.

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.

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

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

"We just wanted her to survive - 10 months later, she's in the Wimbledon final", he wrote. That was part of a run in which she dropped 8 of 9 points.

Fissette, who has coached Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka, Simona Halep and Jo Konta, is known as being very detailed and analytical.

That's just what she did.

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.
