Kerber defeats Williams to win Wimbledon

Kerber also beat Williams in the 2016 Australian Open final and is the only player, apart from Serena's older sister Venus, to beat her twice in a Grand Slam final.

Kerber, known for her defensive style, came to the match with one plan in mind - keep the point going and exploit Williams' lack of mobility around the court.

In a nerveless display of supreme shot-making and guile, Kerber repeated her 2016 Australian Open final triumph over Williams with a commanding 6-3 6-3 victory in Saturday's title showdown at The All England Club.

Williams is a seven-time Wimbledon champion and her 23 major trophies rank second all-time to Margaret Court. I have so much to look forward to.

She's been wearing compression leggings during her matches as a precaution and says she remains nervous.

Williams, and her husband Alex Ohanian, were guests at the royal wedding, and she has spoken about the support her friend gives her on the court.

The German former world number one showed her intent in the first game, breaking the Williams serve that forms the backbone of her game.

After failing to become the first mother to win Wimbledon since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1980, Williams admitted she was powerless to prevent the inspired Kerber taking the title.

Kerber said of her win: "It's just a dream come true".

The American lacked consistency and finished the set with her 14th unforced error to Kerber's three. She also wanted to win, of course.

"I was really happy to get this far", Williams said after the match.

"I'm just me, and that's all I can be", she added when she was called "Supermom".

Williams was asked what she'll tell her daughter, Olympia, about this tournament and this day.

In an interview with Vogue she talked plainly about her post-birth complications - the pulmonary embolisms, the rupture of her C-section wound, and a large hematoma in her abdomen that left her bedridden for six weeks - and the emotional surges of new motherhood while trying to reclaim her body after all the trauma. Actually had nothing - actually, every match this tournament I didn't have a start time. "Now she's supporting me in a different role, but our friendship is still exactly the same", she said.

Williams admitted this time may be more hard, not least because she gave birth just 10 months ago, and has spoken about the tough delivery, which left her in hospital for six weeks.

"I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest".
