Serena Williams Gets Emotional Over Losing Wimbledon Amid Comeback

Angelique Kerber Wim Fissette

Germany's Angelique Kerber returns the ball to US player Serena Williams during their women's singles final match on the day 12 of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at All England Lawn Tennis Club in London, July 14, 2018.

Kerber looked understandably nervous as she served for the match at 5-3 but could celebrate when Williams netted a backhand on her first match point.

Williams, 36, was the first mother to reach the final since Australian Evonne Goolagong triumphed 38 years ago.

"I think without 2017 I couldn't win this tournament", Kerber, who will rise back to world number four, told reporters.

A host of celebrities were out in force at Wimbledon to witness Serena Williams' quest to equal the Grand Slam wins record set by Australian Margaret Court. But when Williams steps out on to court at the US Open she will surely be even hungrier and fitter - and, as usual, be the one player her opponents are afraid of most of all.

In a moving message, Ohanian said Serena is "just getting started" after the loss, highlighting the critical surgery after the daughter's birth. "She played out of her mind".

It is what it is, but we'll try and play that game with as much pride as a team as try and finish on a high. I thank him for everything he did at Real Madrid".

She lost against Germany's Angelique Kerber, 6-3, 6-3. First my C-section wound popped open due to the intense coughing I endured as a result of the embolism. Kerber also won that year's U.S. Open, replacing Williams atop the WTA rankings right afterward. The longer her career extends, greater the current and future WTA match-ups, and the greater the gift of women's tennis.

Unlike Duchess Kate with her signature blowout, Meghan has her hair pinned back in a loose bun, but otherwise they appear to have coordinated their looks nicely.

Williams had fought back from a set down in the quarter-finals against Camila Giorgi, but the fighting spirit was clearly spent this time. This was only her fourth tournament back after the birth of her child.

'She's a really good friend so I'm really happy for her.

Williams had quite a few twists and turns and this proved to be a tough year for the tennis star who seeded 25th in the tournament after her pregnancy hiatus. Just like she did in the quarterfinals (when she stared down Giorgi for having the audacity to ask for another moment to get ready for the serve), Serena tried to intimidate her way into the match, smacking a ball directly at Kerber early in the second set.

"It's interesting because I don't even scout as much because when I watch them play, it's a totally different game than when they play me".
