Serena Williams on Losing Wimbledon Title: 'I'm Literally Just Getting Started'

  • Serena Williams has had a remarkable rise up the rankings

Serena Williams was so gracious with Angelique Kerber in the moments after Saturday's women's final but you could already see her brain switching to the US Open or whatever her next goal is.

Kerber, born to a German father and Polish mother, was also quick to acknowledge the influence of Graf, who won 22 Grand Slam singles titles including seven at Wimbledon. The German now only needs to win the French Open to join Williams and Maria Sharapova as holders of all four major titles.

Husband, and Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, took to Instagram following the loss to highlight just what Williams has been through over the past year, undergoing serious surgery following the birth of daughter Alexis Olympia.

Soon enough, Kerber was down on the grass, celebrating the moment and caking dirt on her white dress.

He wrote an opinion piece for The Hill, sharing his concern that one in four women in America return to work within two weeks of giving birth and that 94% of low wage working people in the USA don't get a single day of paid parental leave. "But to all the moms out there you know I was playing for you today and I tried", she says, fighting back tears. She was a bit negative because she didn't have good memories on clay.

Novak Djokovic has won through to the men's singles decider, outlasting world number one Rafael Nadal in five sets in a semi-final spanning two days. "If you can do that, why can't you maybe win it one day?"

"Angie did exactly what she had to do", Fissette said.

"As we know, Angie brings back every ball so the combination of all of that was ideal for us". I have so much to look forward to and I'm only just getting started. 'Playing finals against Serena (Williams), you know that she is playing her best tennis.

Kerber will be ranked fourth in the world on Monday having started the season down at 21st following a miserable 2017.

The 35-year-old congratulated Kerber on her win and said despite not leaving with the Wimbledon trophy, she has something even better to look forward to. I just feel like to tell all the mums, like I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really hard, and honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it. Perhaps more impressive was this: She broke Williams in 4 of 9 service games.

"And the more experience she has, she will take that into the big matches to stay mentally calm".

Despite so much Grand Slam success, despite holding a 6-2 career edge against Kerber entering the day, Williams played tightly right from the outset. Having left SW19 a year ago as No 4 in the world, on Monday she will drop to No 50.
