This is literally just the beginning. I took a giant step at Wimbledon but my journey has just began. It was over after only an hour and five minutes but, for Williams, the way she was tugged around court, it will surely have felt longer.
Would happily have seen a third and fourth and fifth set of that Kerber vs. Surely ideal situation is now best-of-3 during first 4 rounds for both men and women, and then best-of-5 for the last 2 or 3 rounds - both genders. Tie-breaks in final sets. Great achievement for AngeliqueKerber , a well-deserved third grand slam title. Also amazing effort from serenawilliams to make the final, just over 10 months after a traumatic birth.
In , Kerber won 63 matches. In Kerber won 29 matches. This is 39 wins in A French from a Career Slam. This amazing woman serenawilliams has given birth to her little girl just one day before I gave birth to my girl 10 months ago.
The players walk off court, Kerber is beaming and Williams manages to smile too. Williams trudges up first to collect the runners-up plate, followed by Kerber, who holds aloft the Venus Rosewater dish. Williams holds back the tears again, before replying: Angelique played out of her mind. So Kerber is serving for her first Wimbledon title. A tight second serve from Kerber and Williams loosens up, pinging the cross-court return. Kerber tumbles to the grass, Williams graciously walks to the other side of the court to congratulate the champion, and Kerber is now blowing kisses to the stands.
Two tempting second serves from Kerber but two consecutive backhand errors from Williams and Kerber holds to After less than an hour, Williams must hold serve to stay in this final.. Kerber is the highest-ranked player Williams has played this tournament and it shows.

And on the second she sends another clean winner to almost exactly the same spot! Kerber is in command. Williams hauls herself to deuce from down. But a cry from Williams when Kerber claims the next two points to hold. Kerber is playing with such consistency and Williams is very up and down.
But Williams is sucking for air here, Kerber is doing such a good job of dragging her all around the court. Kerber is the first top defensive player Williams has played this tournament and Williams is finding it hard to keep up.
Williams is willing herself to produce more here. The crowd are doing their best to encourage her too. Williams is pushing at but then throws in the strangest of shots when, at the net, she plays pat-a-cake with a smash. Perhaps the ball dropped lower than she was expecting.
Kerber holds to An ominous stat for Williams: This afternoon was supposed to be about Williams further enhancing her greatness. That could still happen, of course, but Kerber is showing no signs of easing off at the start of the second set. She holds to Discount Serena at your peril She puts away a drive volley, that will have felt good.
Can she build on that? Yes — but it was touch and go — Kerber attempts the lob with Williams close to the net and it goes just long. Williams rams a high backhand into the net and Kerber secures the set!
