Serena to face Kerber in Wimbledon final

Serena to face Kerber in Wimbledon final

It has all meant that Williams, who will be watched on Saturday from the Royal Box on Centre Court by her good friend the Duchess of Sussex, is the favourite for a title that will make her the fourth Grand Slam-winning mum of the Open era. "I know that she is always pushing you to the limits". "I had a really tough delivery. and nearly didn't make it, to be honest", Williams said.

In the first set, the experienced Kerber broke twice while the only break-point Ostapenko earned was when she was leading 3-2.

In the first five games that went with serve, it was Goerges who made more winners, but it was Williams who broke the German to go up 4-2; after this, there was no looking back. Goerges, the first seeded player Williams faced these two weeks, showed she was capable of trading power from the baseline with Williams. In the week leading up to her first-round match against Viktoriya Tomova, Williams posted a daily countdown on Instagram that included flashback Wimbledon photos and uplifting sentiments.

"This is not inevitable for me", said Williams, who gave birth in September. "It's such a pleasure and a joy [to be in the final] because less than a year ago, I was going through so much". "I've been learning a lot from her".

The seven-time Wimbledon champion will face Angelique Kerber in a repeat of the 2016 final, which Williams won, after the German beat Jelena Ostapenko earlier.

A relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany on Thursday put Williams into her 10th final at the All England Club and moved her closer to a 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court's record. She's one match from making that happen, 10 months after childbirth. "So do I", Williams said. "I have to be ready for the match of my life".

The Latvian stuck to her guns, continuing to go all out at the start of the second set, but her radar was way off and Kerber quickly opened up a 3-0 lead, with one break of serve. "I think that's what I was doing in the past. I want to get as many as I can, starting with".

However, unforced errors were her downfall and particularly costly given Williams' unerring accuracy and solid service games.

'She's trying to, yeah, playing like she played the years before where she won the big matches.
